Christmas with the Dinosaurs
It’s Christmas with the dinosaurs!
I’m working on the plans.
I’ll knit T-Rex some mittens
sized to fit his tiny hands.
Apatosaurus surely couldn’t
strike our hearts with dread
while grazing in a Santa hat
(to warm his tiny head).
We’ll drape a festive garland
‘round Triceratops’ horn.
Invite Velociraptor! He’ll delight
in Christmas morn’.
He’ll tear the presents open
with his talons and his jaws.
We’ll dress him in bright red suit
and call him ‘Santa Claws.’
Apparently, I'm on an ironic streak with my Winter Holiday Poem project. Ouch! Itch! Here comes "The Holly and the Ivy"...
The kids are almost home from school. I only had time for a haiku. Here we go...
Here's another holiday poem from me. (Hooray! I made it to #2.) These are quick writing exercises, so they're bound to be imperfect. But I hope they're entertaining. (I know I'm having fun!)
I'll be exercising my writing and rhyming muscles this winter with holiday poems. Here's my first one...and I hope there will indeed be a #2, etc. If anyone reads this and likes it, send me an encouraging word, so I'll be motivated to make more.
