Snowball

I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I’d keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first – it wet the bed!

~ Shel Silverstein

Christmas

It came without ribbons.
It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.

Maybe Christmas means a little bit more!
