Christmas Countdown 2020: 11. Santa Visiting


The image of Santa rushing across the skies,
Lead by his nine favourites stars,
The flying four legged friends,
Pulling his sled from house to house.
***
We all know Dasher,
Named for his speed,
A race reindeer made to move,
Sprinting from tree to tree.
***
Then there’s Dancer,
Majestic and elegant,
Just wanting to dance,
And let his moves shine.
***
Dancer’s twin Prancer,
Is just as elegant,
And he knows it,
Keeping his antlers polished.
***
Vixen is next on the rope,
The distraction to the males,
She adds the touch of class,
To the riding group.
***
We then have Comet,
He’s stubbornly loyal,
Named for the giant rock,
That landed when he was born.
***
Then there is cupid the romancer,
Born on Valentine’s day,
He’s a natural match maker,
But with no success for himself.
***
Donder also known as Donner,
She stands for thunder,
Married to Blitzen,
She is mother to the group.
***
Father Blitzen the brave,
Name stands for lighting,
Never known to back down,
He stands his ground.
***
Lastly there’s Rudolph,
The baby of the group,
With his shiny red nose,
And his inexperienced hoofs.
***
When they ride as one,
You know that Santa has come,
His sled pulled by the best,
With majesty and the power.
