Here Comes Santa Claus

Here Comes Santa Claus

Santa Claus is coming, in only two more nights;
The children so excited, emotions at their heights!
For they’ve written him a letter, or sat upon his knee;
Telling him all the toys they want, and how good they always be!
.
Christmas Eve, they’ll eat their dinner, then watch a TV show;
Their eyes will get very heavy, and off to bed they’ll go!
They’ll dream of Santa’s reindeer, guiding his laden sleigh;
With Rudolph’s shining red nose, illuminating the way!
.
In the morning, when they wake up, they’ll come bounding down the stairs;
To see if Santa filled their wish list, with presents beyond compare!
And he never disappoints them, their desires he always fills;
Spread out ‘neath the Xmas tree, yells of excitement from their lips spill!
.
Mommy and Daddy vicariously enjoy it, their kids so filled with glee;
Dreading when they get older, and learning that Santa is really me!
Oh, the beauty of such young innocence, believing in Santa Claus;
If only adults could have such fantasies, to supersede all of our flaws!
.
.
Here comes Santa Claus
The hero of our children
Adults love him too

Our Dear Cherie,

Ha, Ha, Ha!  It's very interesting, that as a child, being "naughty", can anger Santa.  Yet, as adults, our being naughty excites him.
Merry Christmas to you all too!!!

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx

Such simplicity soaring.... such loving eloquence........ delivered in the highest of pentameter's potential...... painted  poetically within the confines of Christmas' magically ideological belief system........ you have created something VERY special here...... and it is NOT to be taken lightly......... it reaches far beyond  what the imagination of a child is capable of expressing... and knocks most carefully upon the door of the adult mind's memory and wishful thinking....... Your ability shines here..... in a poetically enticing way.... like a guided missile aimed directly at the heart of kindness!!...... Love you my friend....... Love your poetic glow...... and the way that you literally affect all those who read and appreciate your youthful, everlasting, approach to words, myths, and the legends that surround us all!!........PINNED for perfection!!....... Lots of Love...... your friend and ever-admirer!!.......T xo.  : )

My Dear Tony,

What a beautiful Christmas gift I unwrapped this morning, from my treasured poetic Soulmate and great friend, Tony Taylor.  Your words bring chills to my spine, and teardrops to my eyes.  To think that such a gifted man honors me like this, is beyond anything I dreamt of, five years ago!  Making your acquaintance, has been one of the great joys of my life.  I look so forward to the day when we meet in person.  I have made a copy of your incredible comment, and will read it regularly, for the rest of my life. (hopefully, another few decades)
Merry Christmas to you, my dear friend.

All my love,
Larry xxx
