As promised, a little humor to start the long weekend. There will be no long-winded story as to the origin or the moral of this poem. Only a “Merry Christmas wish from to all of you. See you next week. Please have a safe and happy Holiday.


                                                                           THE WISDOM OF SANTA

 I ask myself why, 

why am I blessed,

and why Santa,

is so good to me?

Year after year,

with never a rest,

there are presents,

under my tree.


But, the presents, there wrapped,

with paper and bows,

are not that,

what’s impressive, to me.

No, I would suppose,

it’s more, that he knows,

just how deserving,

I be.
