Poem of the Month for December

Please recite to Mrs. Menke by Friday, December 20th


Merry Christmas
by
Margaret O'Donnell


Carols in the distance,
Laughter everywhere,
I can smell Christmas,
Floating in the air.

Candy canes and bon bons,
Angels top the tree,
There's presents over yonder,
One for you and me!

Tinsel wrapping round and round,
Candles light the night,
Making Santa's journey,
Sparkly and bright.

A very merry Christmas,
To your family my friend,
May your new year bring happiness,
And may the joyful times not end.
