PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS
By Josie Whitehead
We’ve written cards and posted them;
We’ve bought the Christmas tree;
We’ve written out our Christmas lists
Of gifts for you and me.
We bought some gifts for all our friends
And Gran and Granddad too -
And, no, you’re not forgotten at all:
There’s something nice for you.
The tree’s been decorated well.
Lights twinkle in our room
But now, at only four o’clock,
Outside there’s winter’s gloom.
We’ve made our Christmas pudding
And the cake looks really great!
Our home’s been decorated
And now we have to wait.
We snuggle down in our warm beds
And listen for that sleigh,
But the next thing that we realize
Is that it’s Christmas Day.
