Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Sammy

Today's post is brought to you by the letter
A


ALMOST

Tis the time of year when we hear
ho ho hos from far and near.
The child in all of us is filled
with glee, and hope that St. Nicholas and Rudolf
have a clear landings on roofs, or hay bales in fields.
Just ten days and counting oh me oh my
Yes it is ALMOST here so girls, boys,
dads, moms and of course pups and kits
Whatever you do be good or your stockings
will be filled with coal and twigs and possibly figs. (Blah)

  4. Yes, Gail and I agree with Aunty Yam. From a practical perspective, those coals and twigs would be an excellent present.

  5. What a great poem, Madi - but wait - our mom says that figs are yummy! We've never had any so we wouldn't know anything about that.

  6. Oh what a pawsome poem Madi! Only ten days until Santa comes....and I won't go back and comment on yesterday's post but tell you here that the photo of your human sister when she saw what Santa brought her is JUST PLAIN ADORABLES!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe too - Mom makes sausage gravy and biscuits on Christmas morning (her Dad's recipe) to honor him as he always made Christmas morning breakfast for the family when Mom was growing up. A million years ago of course.

    Love, Angel Sammy
