Time for another Poem

See the fun and festive food - Christmas food!
What a world of tasty joy their visages protrude!
How the sugars twinkle, twinkle,
In the party table light!
While the cookies under sprinkles
Bid the tastebuds to slurp-tinkle
With delectable delight;
As we graze, graze, graze,
In a sweet caloric haze,
Wiping fat that dribbles, dribbles
Down our chins with many nibbles
Of the food, food, food, food, food, food, food--
From the feasting and the eating of the food.

See the fun and festive food - Healthy food!
Such delightful presentation cannot be counted rude!
Ah, the fruit, fruit, fruit,
Fresh and juicy in its shell,
Can make the pie's voice mute
And the cookies' horns won't toot,
And also will not make your innards swell,
As we munch, munch, munch
On celery's sweet crunch,
Dipped in fat-free yogurt dressing
Such delights are but a blessing
Of the food, food, food, food, food, food, food--
From the feasting on the yummy healthy food!

  1. Haha! That is great, and I credit our mother for implanting that Edgar Allen Poe poem in our minds! I feel I must give him some air time as well, especially since the first verse is so perfect for this time of year....

    Hear the sledges with the bells-
    Silver bells!
    What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
    How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle,
    In the icy air of night!
    While the stars that oversprinkle
    All the heavens, seem to twinkle
    With a crystalline delight;
    Keeping time, time, time,
    In a sort of Runic rhyme,
    To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
    From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
    Bells, bells, bells-
    From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells.

    I'm picturing you nestled all snug in your bed
    while visions of vegetables dance in your head.


    You are doing great! I'm so proud of you!

    Love you!
    Your sister
