The bricks were bending, and curving around.
The cornstalks surrounded the chimney with care,
In hopes it would stay at it's place up there!
The windows were nestled all snug in the bricks,
The old house falls and won't ever be fixed.
I'm loving this project, and working away...
The perfect escape on a cold winter's day!
Meanwhile, rapid as eagles the FedEx guys flew,
They delivered house portraits to where they were due.
To Michigan first, and Ohio's way,
And then way up north to Canada, eh?
Arkansas, Indy, Illinois, too...
Texas and Maryland, then they were through!
I shipped out eight portraits! Oh boy, did I work!
I filled all my orders (I wasn't a jerk.)
On Christmas morning, under their trees,
People will open their gift and be pleased.
The drawing I made will hang in their home.
They'll smile with pride o'er their beloved abode.
When I drew them, I knew, with each line and measure,
I was making for them a gift to be treasured.
And now I'll exclaim with joy and delight...
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
I hope you have a wonderful holiday, and enjoy some special moments with your family and friends this week!
