HolidayTree
study
'Twas the night before Christmas, and far out at sea
Our vessel was sailing, as smooth as could be

The stockings were hung from the balcony chairs
With hope that St. Nicholas santa would find them out there

The children were nestled all snug in their uppers
Having just settled down from a Christmas Eve supper

And ma and myself, we were covered in aloe
A bit too much sun, in a pool, warm and shallow

When up in the sky, there arose such a clatter
I leapt from my bed to see what was the matter

To the sliding glass door, I flew like a flash
Well, more like a saunter, and less like a dash

And what to my skeptical eyes should appear
But a great shiny sleigh, and eight flying reindeer

They circled our ship, from starboard to port
As the moon lit the driver, a jolly old sort

Who called to his team, in a happy retort
"Now Dasher, now Dancer," so on and so forth

We raced through our cabin and into the hall
To the very top deck, in time for us all

To be awed by the sight of Old Santa's sleigh
As he lightly touched down, by the midnight buffet

With a bundle of goodies thrown over his back
He rose in the air and dropped down the smokestack

Santa went straight to work, and later we learned
He found every child's cabin, from the bow to the stern

Insides and oceanviews, balconies and suites
Santa filled every stocking, with toys and with treats

Until all his deliveries had been handled with care
Then he noted he still had a minute to spare

So he surfed the flow rider, with nary a fall
While Dasher and Dancer scaled the rock-climbing wall

And Prancer, who had always been fond of the cold
Tried the ice-skating rink, a sight to behold

And then with a whistle, Santa summoned his team
And he bade us farewell, silent nights and sweet dreams

And I heard him exclaim, as he flew out of view
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good cruise.

I hope you have a most wonderful time! I think I would be a little hesitant at first, but now that the kids have moved, and I have been having empty nest syndrome, I think a cruise around the Holidays would be kind of nice. That would be a really nice poem to read maybe at the table before dinner, or at midnight on Christams Eve under the stars.

i did not get a respond back from you if that would be ok to copy it, i take it you made it up. i am sure we will have a great time
don't worry the kids will be back, once you get in your routine without the kids they come back. daughter just move back home after done with college to do her internship (she has to work for free now).

Oh Gosh,
Darlene, it is not something I made up. I saw it somewhere else and thought it was cute. Copy away! Sorry about that. My daughter married and moved out last July. That is one that won't be back! Ny Son on the other hand, is another story! I think he is pretty set where he is now, and at 27, I sure hope so!Aagin, have a wonderful cruise! Jax

Merry Christmas all,

I decided to put up my picture finally, this is from the St. Pat's day parade in Raleigh.
