From the book Santa Got Stuck in the Chimney

Our Christmas decor
is the best on the block,
with big plastic candy canes
lining the walk.

Huge holly sprigs circle
a wreath flocked with snow,
which hangs on the door with
a red velvet bow.

The letters NOEL are
spelled out near the hedge;
A snowman’s lit up on
the balcony’s ledge.

The roof’s got eight reindeer
all lined up in twos
and pulling a sleigh trimmed
in twinkling hues.

The eaves are all “frosted”
with icicle lights.
Our house is the greatest
of Christmastime sights.

My Dad says, “enjoy it,
It’s coming down soon.”
“I hope so,” I told him.
“It’s practically June!”
