The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Christmas Time

Snowflakes sprinkle,
Tree lights twinkle,
Sleigh bells tinkle,
Santa’s near!

Pavements glitter,
Robins flitter,
Children chitter,
Morning’s here!

Brussels simmer,
Gifts glimmer,
Baubles shimmer,
Christmas cheer!

Cinders sizzle,
Candles fizzle,
Babies grizzle,
‘Til next year!
