Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
The animals were talking,
Except for the mouse.
She was quiet, you see,
Because she knew that
If she didn’t stay hidden,
She’d be food for the cat!

“I would like toys,” said the dog,
And a nice, new bed.”
“Plenty of catnip for me,
Nothing else,” Kitty said,
“I’m not sure how to say this,”
Came the bird’s reply,
“I want presents that bring bliss
Throughout Christmastide.”

“We agree,” cheered the others,
Including the mouse;
Which caused a big commotion
All around the house:
“Get back here!” cried Kitty;
“It’s a well known fact
That mice have always been meant
For a delicious snack!”

But Mouse just started laughing
As she ran away;
“I guess you will go hungry
Till some other day”
She danced and swirled with glee
She squealed in delight.
“That’s enough for now, Kitty,
Until next time, good night!”

So if you ever wonder
What goes on while you sleep;
Whether animals still talk
And company keep,
Relax and remember,
They will never tell
Because they want their secrets
To be hidden so well.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
