I struggled and struggled but here is a children’s poem

It’s rushing round shops

And stressed out mum

Dad’s wandered off

And gran’s looking glum


It’s ‘wrap up warm dear’

And scarfs pulled too tight

But I don’t care

Santa comes tonight!


All year round I’ve been good

Or at least this week

I’ve wished for snow

But the tv’s promising sleet


Tucked up in bed

Curtains ajar to see

Father Christmas arrive

And leave presents by the tree


But wait, oh dear

I’ve made a mistake

Snow indoors doesn’t work

And now it’s too late


Dad wakes me excited

I don’t know why

I won’t get my wish

Then to the window I fly


The whole of the garden

Is covered in white

I dance and hug dad

With all of my might
