Just two more weeks 'til December 25th and the Moose have all been invited.
More fun than a teddy bear's picnic, much better than toys on parade.
My collection of moose have been turned loose, all have come out to play!
So many personalities, these moose, at first glance, almost too many to see.
When they arrive, the house comes alive. It's time to trim the Chris-moose tree!!
That's where you'll find moose of artistic kind, moose who are whimsy in nature,
Speaking of which, three of pinecones and pitch, and a few realistic in stature.
Several came from the Great State of Maine, where Tim and I love to vacation.
Even more, I believe, gifts from friends I received with wonderous anticipation.
Like Debbie who got Marvelous Macey, in heels and hot pink feathered dress,
My mother-in-law gave Mad Mike, Mitch and Maw, tho' I don't appreciate his mess...
Roger, my bro' sent Melody Moe,
whose same song over and over he sings.
Karen turned loose Melis, the albino moose,
Sister Sandy brought Maynard, who swings.
All gave a cheer once the Blues Brothers got here,
Merv and Marv; they even brought their own game.
Basketball center, Mervus, whose arrival made me nervous, 'fraid he might have brought his whole team.
The Moose family of five, plus Bear, finally arrived,
all tired and thirsty from travel.
Dressed to the nines, sitting beneath the pines,
They sipped tea on a pathway of gravel.
Meriweather came, sat under the weather vane, and exclaimed, "This moose be the place."
Then Monroe sauntered in, eyed every moose around him, all with a grin on their face.
When in stomped Max, with a pack on his back,
filled with presents of which there were plenty.
Each gift wrapped and tied, a surpise hidden inside,
numbering more than one hundred and twenty.
Finally along came the quads--Mel, Millie, Milt & Maude, two sleepy polar bears and Maggie tagging with them.
Now with my halls decked and jolly, feeling somewhat melancoly,
'Cause once more, MERRY CHRIS-MOOSE begins!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
FROM MY HOME,
TO YOURS, WITH LOVE!!
