A Christmas poem with an unusual participants. I have written a childrens story based on the poem,and hope to have it published next year.
I was looking out my window
on Christams Eve night. Low
and behold I saw such a strange
and wondrous sight!
I saw Santa in his sleigh,
but no reindeer were in sight,
instead it was pulled by
flamingos, and they were in
Each was in harness with jingle
bells attached. They wore long
red stockings and fine Christmas
I saw them stop at each house
on our street. They waited
patiently while Santa delivered
When he came to our house, I
pretended to be asleep. I heard
him leave , and into his sleigh
I heard Santa shout, calling
each name. They started to move
and were soon flying again.
Santa called out as they flew
out of sight, "Merry Christmas
South Florida on this very special

|Flamingos seem to be appearing all over A.D.! A clever idea for these beautiful birds to pull Santa's seligh all around Florida :o)
Should make a delightful children's story...
Merry Christmas Mary Grace...

|Who'da ever thunk it? A novel concept which should be a hit with children, or my name isn't Grammy!
I do wish Santa would have called them by name, though...On, Pinky, on Fluffo, on Feathers and Jetstream.....
It's a fun poem.
Best wishes with it.
