Christmas - A Little Friend's Poem - Written By Amy Boothby, aged 10


Are you...........
ready for Christmas? , to decorate the tree,
The sparkling baubles that shine with glee,
The shops are filled with Christmas galore,
But the people are shouting, 'We want more',
Each and every leaf, is covered in snow,
We're still waiting for Santa's Ho! Ho! Ho! ,
The Christmas lights, light up the street,
Presents to open, people to greet,
Look what's under the tall green tree,
Are these presents all for me?

    Perhaps the greastest poem here is your poetic voice from the heart.What a fine young writer she is and what a kind hearted person to have shown the world.Lovely poem and lovely thought Ernestine.
    I hope that Amy is as happy with this one as we are.Love Duncan (Report) Reply

    Ernestine, absolutely. On a scale of
    1 to 10, this is a 20! However, since
    the scale is only to ten, I was forced
    to give you such a low rating as a ten.
    God Bless

    I wonder if Amy wouldn't enjoy the work of another young girl named Hilda Conkling. Her mother used to write down every poem she said and Amy Lowell ended up writing an intro for her and helping her get them published. They are so darling. Here is a link to her fascinating bio and poems: http: //www.oldpoetry.com/author/Hilda%20Conkling (Report) Reply

    Oh my! Ten years old? She really must keep on writing (and posting here) Ernestine. It's so nice of you to post it for her. I hope you encourage her to keep writing! Sincerely, mary (Report) Reply

    this is great! Tell Amy I wrote my first real poem when I was ten, too. How I wish we had put together the Christmas anthology that I wanted to do originally. Most of my family would really appreciate this. (Report) Reply

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
