Christmas poem? I can't find one at 2peas that I like and just wondered if anybody knew of one I could use for a swap I'm in.

TIA!

Here is one- it's kind of long:

HANG UP THE BABY'S STOCKING

By Emily Huntington Miller

Hang up the baby's stocking

Be sure you don't forget!

The dear little dimpled darling,

She never saw Christmas yet!

But I've told her all about it,

And she opened her big blue eyes;

And I'm sure she understood it-

She looked so funny and wise.

Dear, what a tiny stocking!

It doesn't take much to hold

Such little pink toe's as baby's

Away from the frost and the cold

But then, for the baby's Christmas,

It will never do at all.

Why! Santa wouldn't be looking

For anything half so small.

I know what I will do for the baby.

I've thought of the very best plan.

I'll borrow a stocking of Grandma's,

The longest that ever I can

And you'll hang it by mine, dear mother,

Right here in the corner so!

And leave a letter to Santa,

And fasten it in the toe.

Write-this is the baby's stocking,

That hangs in the corner here.

You never have seen her, Santa,

For she only came this year

But she's just the blessed'st baby.

And now before you go,

Just cram her stocking with goodies,

From the top clean down to the toe!


HTH,

KAte

Tina, I had printed this one out awhile ago. I saw it in a catalog, it was printed in a frame or something.

Baby's First Christmas

What a precious bundle of joy you are

cute from head to toe

You melt our hearts with your sweetness

everywhere you go

You're a special gift this Christmas

sent from heaven above

A perfect little angel

for all of us to love
