Santa Claus

Santa Claus short poem

Every Christmas

I receive

All the gifts

I want

And,

I wonder

How Santa Claus

Knows

What

I need most.

My Santa

Does not come

All the way

From North Pole

Riding a Reindeer Sleigh!

He does not

Come in

Red Santa costumes

But in ordinary,

Everyday clothing

Because

My Santa is not just one

But many!

All my relatives

And, friends

Are my Santas!

Santa need not

Be a person

In red costume!

Santa

Need not come

All the way

From North Pole!

Santa

Could be anyone

Bringing gifts

And, good cheer

To one and all

During

The Christmas Season…

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
