Advent 2006: A Letter to Santa Claus

A Letter to Santa Claus

Dear Santa,

    Being a grandpa, I need no toys
    No roller blades like little boys
    No need of tinsel covered trees
    I have a cover to warm my knees

    Bring to me no fancy clothes
    I have lots of socks for my toes
    Shirts and jackets from the store
    Believe me Santa I need no more

    Have a coat for when it rains
    Need no trinkets or electric trains
    No need of horns or noisy drums
    Have a sweeper to clean up crumbs

    Yet should you happen by my way
    On the eve of Christmas Day
    Leave no tapes of holiday tunes
    Leave paper plates and plastic spoons

Paul T. Schulz
