Poem: Rudolph

 

Staring through the railings,
animated chatter
and lots of activity,
people coming in and out,
take me home
but not just for Christmas.
I might be a pug
with a fierce face
but my heart is full
with love
and Christmas cheer
to last the whole year ’round.
My name is Rudolph
so I’m festive
throughout the year.
A family stop,
my heart beats,
they decide to take me,
we are each other’s Christmas present,
a present for life.
