Thank You


Dear Santa Claus, Dear Aunty Sue,
Dear Uncle George and Grandma, you
Were every kind to send me such
Nice presents, thank you very much.
How did you know I wanted sox
And hankies in a pretty box,
And wool pajamas and a pair
of slippers and new underwear?
Thank you very much for knowing
Just my size, the way I’m growing.
I liked them very much, and thank
You for the lovely savings bank.
Also the scrubbing brush and soap
Were very nice too, and I hope
You had a happy Christmas day.
My toys are swell! Now may I play?
