It was the night before Chickmas and…1 – 9

It was the night before Chickmas
and all through The Coop

the chicklets were playing
with their hula-hoops

the stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that St. Chickalus
soon would be there

the chicklets were nestled
all snug in their beds
while visions of corn bread
danced fast
in their heads

the hens in their kerchiefs
the rosters in caps
didn’t have time
for a long winter’s nap

when out on the lawn
there arose such a clatter
they sprang from their nest
to see what was the matter

and what to their wondering eyes did appear
but a miniature sleigh and
one tiny reindeer

as they drew in their heads
they heard a strange sound
and there was St. Chickalus
when they turned around

there were gifts for the chicklets
the hens and the cats
the dogs and the roosters
the horses and bats
the cows and the goats
the birds and the ducks
even the pigs and the squirrels were in luck
all were included
it’s always that way
so everyone there
had the best Chickmas day

The Night Before Chickmas…

It was The Night Before Chickmas and all through The Coop
The chicklets were playing with their hula-hoops
Some stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Chicklaus soon would be there
The chicklets were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of cornbread danced fast in their heads
The hens in their kerchiefs, the roosters in caps, didn’t have time for a long winter’s nap
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter they ran to the window to see what was the matter
And what to their wondering eyes did appear but a miniature sleigh and one tiny reindeer
As they drew in their heads they heard a new sound and saw St. Chicklaus, when they turned around
There were gifts for the chicklets, the hens and the cats, the dogs and the roosters, the horses and bats. The cows and the goats, the birds and the ducks, even the pigs and the squirrels were in luck. All were included, it’s always that way, so everyone there had a wonderful day
The chicklets are happy, their hearts are aglow, they’re all very grateful, they want you to know.  But parties need planning*, there are things to be done, so Happy Chickmas to you, they hope you had fun.

 

*The big Chickmas party will be held on Chickmas Eve.  So the chicklets are busy getting ready.  They shall return but this is the end of their Night Before Chickmas story.  ❤
