A Puppy's 12 Days of Christmas by Elise Lewis 1997 Part 4 of 4

On the tenth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

Ten Christmas cards I shoulda mailed

My wreath in nine pieces

Eight tiny reindeer fragments

Seven scraps of wrapping paper

Six yards of soggy ribbon

Five chewed-up stockings

Four broken window candles

Three punctured ornaments

Two leaking bubble lights

And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

Eleven unwrapped presents

Ten Christmas cards I shoulda mailed

My wreath in nine pieces

Eight tiny reindeer fragments

Seven scraps of wrapping paper

Six yards of soggy ribbon

Five chewed-up stockings

Four broken window candles

Three punctured ornaments

Two leaking bubble lights

And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

A dozen puppy kisses And I forgot all about the other eleven days.

A Puppy’s Christmas

A Puppy’s Christmas

It’s the day before Christmas
And all through the house
The puppies
are squeaking
An old rubber mouse.

 The wreath which had merrily
Hung on the door
Is scattered in
pieces
All over the floor.

The stockings that hung
In a neat little row
Now boast a hole in
Each one of the toes.

The tree was subjected
To bright-eyed whims,
And now, although
splendid,
It’s missing some limbs.

§

I catch them and hold them.
“Be good”, I insist.
They lick me, then
run off
To see what they’ve missed.

And now as I watch them
The thought comes to me,
That theirs is the
spirit
That Christmas should be.

Should children and puppies
Yet show us the way,
And teach us the
joy
That should come with this day?

Could they bring the message
That’s written above,
And tell us
that, most of all
Christmas is love.

On the fourth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

Four broken window candles

Three punctured ornaments

Two leaking bubble lights

And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

Five chewed-up stockings

Four broken window candles

Three punctured ornaments

Two leaking bubble lights

And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas my puppy gave to me

Six yards of soggy ribbon

Five chewed-up stockings

Four broken window candles

Three punctured ornaments

Two leaking bubble lights

And the Santa topper from the Christmas tree.
