Babbo di Verona's Story
Babbo di Verona’s origins, age, and most of his history,
remain a mystery.
So this is a short story,
about one of the signori.
He arrived in Verona on a bulging gift filled dory.
It was late one Christmas Eve,
all accounts say Babbo was smiling and merry,
but very focused on his task and did not chat or tarry.
According to all diaries from the day everyone agrees,
he wore a white floral embroidered robe,
and Italy was the only place he visited on the globe.
There were many queries but no one could probe,
for as soon as he made his deliveries,
he left before answering any inquires,
becoming yet another bit of JingleNog lore and history.
