Christmas - A Little Friend's Poem - Written By Amy Boothby, Aged 10 - Poem by Ernestine Northover

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?

    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
