‘Twas the night before Christmas and all round the farm
The coyotes were sleeping and doing no harm
The hens were all nestled all snug in their coop
And they kept laying so they wouldn’t be soup
Pride ran to his shed, in a mad dash
He stood there waiting for his warm pellet mash
Smudge was asleep, all curled in her chair
Luna stood guard, not moving a hair
And Pippin he checked, under the tree
Surely there’s something there edible for me
Little red Jake, he looked for a toy
Can you throw it for me, I’ve been a good boy?
And Calli looked up from her old green mat
I heard a sound, she said, now what was that?
It must be Saint Nick, out on our roof
The noise of the reindeer, and each little hoof
He left a few gifts and then leapt in his sleigh,
And waved an arm, and Pride gave a neigh
Did he really want to guide Santa that night?
I don’t think so Pride, your nose isn’t bright
The sheep were munching on hay in their shed
It really was time to head off to bed
But we were all happy and still full of good cheer
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!!!!
