Aspects of Santa

... a seasonal character

Ann Robbins Talbot

Santa is a symbol
Of childhood innocence
Clothed in smooth red velvet
And soft white furry trim

Santa is a spirit
Of anticipation
Through the eyes of toddlers
Dreaming of shiny toys

Santa is a steward
Of parents' hanging on
To an old dear legend
Perpetuating myth

Santa is a starlight
In wintry December
Lifting up our feelings
No matter what our age

Santa is a standard
By which we are measured
For generosity
And good will to all
