Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 416 (That Old Stocking)


The old stocking was pulled out once again-
The first time, I saw it, I can remember when.
.
For Mother made it with her hands, ever so busy-
And, when it was finished, it was a glorious sight to see.
.
It began with felt that was so red-
So soft, as she continued ahead.
.
The elves that were put on, had beads for eyes-
The reindeer appeared to be, just the right size.
.
Of course, Santa stood out among the rest-
My Mother created a masterpiece, she passed that test.
.
In the bottom corner was a bit of hay-
Yes, on this stocking, Jesus, was on his way.
.
My name was highlighted on the top-
And, not with just my name, did she stop.
.
It was a bit faded now, but I could see hers too-
I wonder if she knew what this would mean to me,
years later, when she was finally through.
.
The old stocking was pulled out once again-
The first time, I saw it, I can remember when.
