Sleigh Bells
Poet: Jane Belk Moncure

Reindeer prancing through the snow
Sleigh bells jingling as they go
Now I know that Santa's near.
This is what I hear:

Tap, tap, tap!
Thump, thump, thump!
down the chimney
with a bump!

I will not move.
I will not peep!
For Santa thinks
I'm fast asleep!

Candy Canes
Poet: Colleen L. Reece

Candy canes
are like peppermint sticks.
The more I lick them
the smaller they get!

When I'm done
and get ready for bed,
I stick out my tongue
and it's candy cane red!

Are The Reindeer
Poet: Rowena Bennett

"Are the reindeer in the rain, dear?"
Asked Mrs. Santa Claus.
"No. I put them in the bard, dear,
To dry their little paws."

"Is the sleigh, sir, put away, sir,
In the barn beside the deer?"
"Yes, I'm going to get it ready
To use again next year."

And the pack, dear, is it back, dear?"
"Yes. It's empty of its toys,
And tomorrow I'll start filling it,
For next year's girls and boys."

White Fields
Poet: James Stephens

In the winter time we go
Walking in the fields of snow;

Where there is no grass at all;
Where the top of every wall,

Every fence and every tree,
Is as white as white can be.

Pointing out the way we came,
- Every one of them the same -

All across the fields there be
Prints in silver filigree;

And our mothers always know,
By the footprints in the snow,

Where it is the children go.

A Ride With Santa
Poet: Ovie Pedigo Tanner

I wish that dear old Santa
Would take me for a ride;
I’d like to drive his reindeer
And sit by Santa’s side.

I'd like to help old Santa
Find all the girls and boys,
So each one might be happy
With Christmas books and toys.

Jingle, jingle, jingle, jingle,
Christmas toys we'd bring.
Jingle, jingle, jingle, jingle,
How the bells would ring!

Poet: Judy K. Owen

I like Christmas, for it brings lots of joy;
Little children are happy over every Christmas toy.
And on this night so long ago
The angels sang on this wonderful night;
And around them shone a holy light.

Christmas Recipe
Poet: Gay Dowling

A pound of fun
And a pound of joy
Make a nice present
For a girl or boy.

A cup of goodness
And a cup of love
Really are gifts
From heaven above.

A pinch of holly
And a pinch of pine -
Now, we know
It's Christmas time.

Christmas Trees
Poet: Joyce Howland

People are as busy as bees,
Carrying home their Christmas trees.
Putting on their pretty lights
And decorations very bright.

Poet: Iris Lane Franklin

Christmas is for mistletoe,
Evergreens, and holly;
Christmas is for Santa Claus,
Red and fat and jolly.

Christmas is for hearts to love
And voices to sing,
For on that day in Bethlehem
Was born the Christ, our King.

Song of Santa's Helper
Poet: Ernestine Cobern Beyer

I'm Jingle, the elf, I am glad to tell!
I was born, they say, in a jingle bell!
I' little and nimble and jolly, oh,
And my cheeks are redder than holly, oh!

I curry young Rudolph and rouge his nose;
I shine the sleigh till it gleams and glows!
I give rubber toys their jolly squeak,
And tenderly color the dolly's cheek!

When Santa sets off on his Christmas trip,
I sit at his side, and I crack the whip
Until he exclaims with a merry, "Whoa!
Our first stop, please, is Ontario!"

I'm Jingle, the elf! I am gay and spry!
From toe to tassel, I'm two feet high!
I work and I sing and I whistle, oh,
And my heart is as merry as mistletoe!

Songs are different, every one; and everybody who sings has fun.
