A visit from Saint Nicholas



Jolly old Saint Nicholas,

Thanks for stopping by!


How we loved to find our shoes,

Filled and piled so high.

Christmas Eve is coming soon,

But not quite fast enough.

We just can’t wait for it to come,

And loved to find this stuff!


A car, a superhero Pez,

And candy by the score.

Some crackers too—you should have seen

Us spill them on the floor.


Then—get this part—our mama let

Us start our day with sweets.

She winced, but we agreed to eat

Some real food with our treats.


What fun to start a day with treats

All stuffed inside a shoe.

If this is what saints get to do,

We’d like to be saints, too.

Happy St. Nicholas Day!
