Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Christmas Dogs)

It was Christmas time-
And the air was filled with rhyme.

The dogs as it were-
Enjoyed the day run at the shelter.

They got to play with those who worked there-
There were plenty of games and toys fair.

The snow had begun to fall on the ground-
And many paw prints could be found.

Another day of relief is how many dogs felt-
They were gracious to make your heart melt.

They didn’t know exactly what might happen-
If things went bad, if society did not pledge spend.

For those kind of things dogs simply don’t know-
They just love petting, attention, and other things so.

A new batch of dogs arrived and joined the group-
That received enough pledges in order to re-coup.

To live a day longer and hope for a home-
To not be put to death, to no longer roam.

The memory of those who didn’t make another day-
Makes for a sad moment in many a way.

To be remembered in our hearts and mind-
To never be forgotten, to not be left behind.

It was Christmas time-
And the air was filled with rhyme.

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.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 683 (Santa Watches Those Christmas Movies Too)

Santa Claus was running late-
For he had to catch up on some
old Christmas movies, that he
hadn’t seen, as of late.
.
First there was “The Magic Christmas Tree”-
Made in 1964, where there were three wishes to be.
.
And, in 1941, “The Night Before Christmas”-
Where many battles between Tom and Jerry,
they did merrily amass.
.
Next came “Scrooge”, so many versions there
came to be-
One made in 1935, one made in 1951, and
a musical in 1970.
,
“Prancer” made in 1989-
Where a girl nurses a reindeer, and makes
him well and fine.
.
“Twas the Night Before Christmas” had
to be seen-
An oldie, made back in 1914.
.
“Miracle on 34th Street, Santa knew well-
For back in 1947, he sat and watched it
for a spell.
.
Santa had seen “A Christmas Carol” made in
1938, so many times through the years-
First, it brought sadness, then it brought
cheers.
.
Santa knew that he was on a schedule,
but, to see a few more-
So many Christmas movies had been
made, it was hard for him to get out the door.
.
“Elf” in 2003, especially made Santa laugh-
As a matter of fact, it tickled his whole
toy making staff.
.
In 1990, “Home Alone” Santa could remember
when-
So much action was performed by that little Kevin.
.
“How the Grinch stole Christmas” in 1966-
Was a favorite for the kids, and one of Santa’s
special picks.
.
Another movie that Santa had to watch and address-
Was that magical one, 2004’s “The Polar Express”.
.
Time was running out, it was about time to go-
But, just one more for Santa, from a long time ago.
.
“It’s A Wonderful Life” in 1946, starring that
George Bailey-
Santa always tried, but, at the end, there were always
so many tears of joy, to see.
.
After wiping his eyes, he set out to ready the reindeer-
To set out on Christmas Eve, with the sky so bright
and clear.
.
Santa Claus was running late-
For he had to catch up on some
old Christmas movies, that he
hadn’t seen, as of late.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (My Favorite Christmas Song)

Every year I like to get my Christmas song singing done-
But it’s so hard to figure out which is my favorite one.
.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer-
Helped Santa to see clear.
.
Jingle Bell Rock-
The children certainly do watch the Christmas Eve clock.
.
It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas-
Just as it has in Christmas past.
.
Do You Hear What I Hear?
I think that is Santa, on the roof, and his reindeer.
.
All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth-
And if you don’t mind, you can throw in a beautiful holiday wreath.
.
The Man With All the Toys-
To be delivered shortly to all the girls and boys.
.
Winter Wonderland-
Doesn’t come naturally, as Mother Nature gives it a helping hand.
.
Frosty the Snowman-
As long as it stays cold, he’ll be on hand.
.
Here Comes Santa Claus-
You know the man, the Christmas elves’ boss.
.
Santa Claus is coming to town-
He’ll leave the North Pole, and then he
is fully around the earth bound.
.
Every year I like to get my Christmas song singing done-
But it’s so hard to figure out which is my favorite one.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Special Eve At The Animal Shelter)

It was the night before Christmas-
And all the wishes had been cast.

For Santa was coming and all the animals knew-
Excitement in the air, as the anticipation grew.

The shelter was decorated in red and green-
So many other decorations were also seen.

Many had been abandoned and left on the street-
Found their way to the shelter, and received a treat.

With a chance to get pledges to stay alive-
Much media on this subject was in full drive.

Keith Olbermann was one who jumped in-
And highlighted these needy dogs without spin.

For he was a good man and did a good deed-
Exactly what the shelter really did need.

The next morning the animals did arise-
To a much wanted and requested surprise.

Enough pledges to keep going strong-
With the thoughts of a home to come along.

A very Merry Christmas to one and all-
To please send your pledges without much stall.
