Holiday greetings! May the peace and joy of the season be yours!
Here is Tom’s adorable poem!
The Cardinal and the Chickadee
were sitting on a branch.
Said the Chickadee to Cardinal,
“It makes me want to blanch
to think that I’ve forgotten
that thing I can’t remember.”
“Do you know,” the Cardinal said
“It’s almost gone December?”
“I know! I know!” said Chickadee,
“Yet still I have forgot
a thing to do with joyous times
and presents that we’ve bought!”
“Perhaps a visit from a bird
all dressed in Santa-red
might jog your brain, you poor old thing,”
was all the Cardinal said.
“Of course! That’s it!” said Chickadee,
then sang a happy song.
“It’s Christmas, yes, it’s Christmastime!
I knew it all along!”
