Remarkable Sylvia Stein

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Each and every Christmas Eve
remarkable Sylvia Stein
stuffs some holly up her sleeve
and covers her body with pine.

She wears garlands ’round her waist
and Christmas lights over her shirt.
Ribbons keep her sneakers laced
and tinsel is draped on her skirt.

Looking vastly overgrown,
so hidden she can’t even see,
in the hall she stands alone
pretending she’s only a tree.

Every Christmas she has found
this costume can never be beat.
Everyone that comes around
lays presents at Sylvia’s feet.
