A Chanukah Poem ...
Twas right before Chanukah and the house was a mess ...
I said to myself, Thank goodness no guests!
I dragged out the crayons and the holiday tablecloth,
But it's nearly impossible to color, even I'm feeling lost!
(bad rhyme attempt there!)
I tried really hard to find our menorah,
But no luck just yet, so don't dance that hora. :(
That's really okay because I realized last night,
That I only have about 3 candles to light!
The sparkly Star of David hangs up on the wall,
With a snowman to stare at, oh-ho, what a ball!
The dreidels are missing, nowhere to be found.
Now wait just a minute, what was that sound?
Ah, of course. Christmas music. Why that? - you might ask.
If I have to search for Chanukah songs any longer I might need my own flask.
My daughter just approached with two Santa hats,
and a Merry Christmas she shouted, though her tidings fell flat.
I think our next step will be to bake,
And sugar cookies shaped like Jewish Stars we will make.
Then tonight, best of all, latkes made from potatoes.
I'm using a box mix, but nobody knows!
And lastly we'll sit on the phone or on Skype,
To talk to my family and share in the hype.
We'll gather together across all the miles,
Singing the blessings and sharing the smiles.
Because no matter how far we live or how near,
Sharing holiday moments with loved ones so dear,
Tis the only way we'll celebrate,
Candles are at sundown, now don't be late!
HAPPY CHANUKAH TO YOU AND YOURS!
