I Still Believe

A Poem by Rita L. Sev

On

Christmas

Eve, the sky we

spied; in morning’s

light, we’d be wide-eyed

Just what we’d wanted was under

our tree; it must have been Santa ~

who else could it be? As for the stockings,

he’d filled up each one, then ate up the cookies

when his job was done. Now some traditions may

not be the same, but that spirit of giving, I’ll never disclaim

Christmas yet fills me

with great joy, because…

I still believe in Santa Claus J

The rhyming works well with the sense of Christmas tradition in the poem. I really liked the way you were able to fit it into a Christmas tree shape. Clever!

Very merry, indeed! Thank you, Julie!
This was an adorable, cleverly crafted poem. Reminds me of my very early childhood when I would always eagerly await Santa Claus, and always be excited to find presents beneath the tree. Very nice job, and have a Happy New Year's. :)
