Merry Christmas and Feline Friday! December 25, 2020

I wrote the poem below many years ago.

 Today is much simpler

With only stockings to fill

But I miss the childish chuckles

In the early morning still

Of sweet children opening gifts

Of toys so wanted and admired

Whispered softly in Santa's ear

What those little hearts desired

And in that early morning

As parents yawn and smile

They watch their lovely children

Past remembrances beguile

Another lovely Vancouver kitty!
Merry Merry Christmas! 
Lots of good wishes and hugs!
Thanks Sandee!
