Mr. December's Story
You know this fellow in his holiday splendor.
He is a favorite of every shop keep, child, and church member.
He stands out in every crowd, twinkling eyed, jolly and stout,
with rosy cheeks and a beard white as a cloud.
This gent is world renowned, with stories too many to recount.
His work is to spread joy and wonder.
While his season arrives each year at the end of November,
every day of the spring, fall, winter and summer,
and every night as we dreamily slumber under our covers,
he and his team of untold numbers,
make gifts in every size, shape and color,
while planning routes and sharpening sleigh runners.
Every Christmas Eve he travels your way,
with his eight reindeer in a overflowing sleigh.
He is the one who reads all your lists and letters,
delivering despite the weather,
his holiday is one that all eagerly await and remember.
He is Mr. December.
