Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus~by rldubour


Good morning to everyone! Starting today Saturday through Thursday, Fridays will be for American Heroes. I will post a work from my Christmas Collection of poetry until the end of December. Hope you will enjoy and a very joyous  Holiday season to all!

 

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

 

 

To believe is not ridiculous

In Santa Claus or Saint Nicholas

The night before Christmas

We hear the bells jingle

It is Father Christmas, Sisterklass

Or Kris Kringle.

 

In western cultures

He is historic

Magical, mythical

And folkloric.

 

Once a year he brings

Gifts to all the good children

The night before Christmas

When the air is a Chillan.

 

For all the good boys

For all the good girls.

Santa brings gifts

All over the world.

 

December 24th  it’s

Christmas eve.

With his sleigh and

Eight reindeers

Packed with presents

To leave.

 

Depicted as portly, joyous

A white bearded man

Dropping off joy

To everyone in all lands.

 

He wears a red coat

With white collar and cuffs

On this one night a year

He can not do enough.

 

Tradition says Santa lives

At the North Pole

With magical elves

This I was told.

 

He makes out a list

Who was naughty or nice

With the aid of his reindeers

He flies through the night.

 

Delivering presents

Even candy and toys

To well behaved children

Every girl and boy.

 

Not resting till done

Not even to pause

Yes Virginia there

Is a real Santa Clause!
