A Christmas Story Christmas Angels (1) by P.Z.
Mann
  • The Whittles lived in Humbleburg as poor as poor
    can be. But all their neighbors loved them, for
    their generosity.
  • For though the Whittles' shelves were bare, their
    cottage tumbledown,When Christmas came they made
    a toy, for every child in town.

9
Christmas Angels (2)
  • One Christmas Eve they climbed in bed after all
    the toys were made and while they dreamed of
    better times,The Whittles were repaid.
  • That night three Christmas angels came, to give
    them a reward --For heaven won't let any act of
    kindness be ignored.

10
Christmas Angels (3)
  • One angel searched the cupboard and found just a
    crust of bread "Now, this won't do", she
    whispered, "Let's prepare a feast instead!"
  • The angels flapped their magic wings, as only
    they are able, and in a flash a flood of
    foodFilled all the shelves and table!

11
Christmas Angels (4)
  • And as the angels waved their wings, Christmas
    tree appeared!
  • Two angels trimmed the pretty tree. The third
    flew to and fro. Hanging bells and holly
    boughs,and sprigs of mistletoe.

12
Christmas Angels (5)
  • Outside, the angels dressed the house with
    icicles and snow. And on the door they placed a
    wreath, complete with a bright red bow!
  • They finished all they came to do, before the
    break of day. And as the Whittles roused from
    sleep, the angels flew away.

13
Christmas Angels (6)
  • Now, when the Whittles saw the food and all the
    decoration,They pinched themselves and wept for
    joy. Then danced in celebration!As word spread
    through the village of their heaven-sent
    surprise. Every Humbleburger came to see with
    their own two eyes!

14
Christmas Angels (7)
  • The Whittles shared their Christmas feast. They
    emptied all the shelves. Their kindness wouldn't
    let them keep good fortune to themselves.
  • When everyone had cleaned their plate, they all
    joined in a song and up above-though no one
    heard--The angels sang along!

A Poem for Santa (1)
  • Santa, dear Santa, you worry (??) us so.I feel I
    must tell you some things you should know.That
    belly (??) of yours just gets bigger each
    year.We think it reveals too much holiday cheer
    (??).
  • Weve started a fan club (???), theres three of
    us here.Theres me and an elf (???) and a
    faithful reindeer(??).You are our hero (??),
    youve touched (??) us somehow.Youre all that
    we have to believe (??) in right now.

A Poem for Santa (2)
  • You check us all out to see if were
    naughty(??).Is that glows on your nose from an
    extra hot toddy ???While we love to hear all
    your ho ho ho ho-ing,The list of fat stories
    they tell just keeps growing.
  • Is it true that last Christmas you suffered from
    gout ??,And those snazzy red trousers you wear
    were let out?One strange vicious rumor, its a
    false one we hopeHas you dropping gifts down
    the chimneys ?? by rope.
  • While all of your ho hos we know very well,Your
    ding dongs, we fear, dont come from a bell.They
    say, as your reindeer streak ?? through the
    sky,You drink cherry cokes with your raspberry
    pie.

18
A Poem for Santa (3)
  • The aerobics instructors ???? are all sure to
    say,You ought to work out, maybe jog with the
    sleigh.Perhaps strong exertion?? is too much
    for you.But you really should try just a sit up
    ???? or two.
  • So shed ?? a few pounds, Santa, what do you
    say?We all want you back to enjoy Christmas
    day.Season's greetings from me, one reindeer,
    one elf.Merry Christmas to you, please take care
    of yourself.
