Christmas

Seasonal Nonsense Rhyme

I tried to write a Christmas card
but found that I could not
as to whom I was to send it
was something I forgot

was it for the doctor?
or maybe for his nurse?
did I get one for the baker?
my memory’s the worst.

did I buy it for the keeper
of the parrots at the zoo
or maybe for a missionary
in far off Kathmandu?

maybe looking at the card
will help me break this curse
then I can take my ballpoint pen
to compose a little verse

at last I had a brainstorm
a bolt out of the blue
my little card’s this poem
with love from me to you.
