Once upon a long winter’s night,
dawn’s gentle snow had strengthened by twilight,
creating a vast blanket of twinkling whites.
Through a full moon and the northern star,
a magical illusion appeared from afar.
This red suited elf in a sleigh came into sight,
crossing the sky with eight reindeer in flight.
In my sleepy haze it was a lovely dream,
but when I woke,
I found under the tree,
a present marked from Santa Claus to me!
