DOUGHNUTS IN THE FIR TREE

DOUGHNUTS IN THE FIR TREE

On the first day of Christmas

My Mrs. gives to me:

a doughnut in a Fir Tree.

On the second day of Christmas

I jump up fast with glee

with glaze stuck all over me.

On the third day of Christmas

My Mrs. gives to me:

two sprinkled cakes

and a doughnut in a Fir Tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas

I sing songs, “dee, dee, dee,”

as dots pour all over me.

On the fifth day of Christmas

My Mrs. gives to me

three Boston Creams

two sprinkled cakes

and a doughnut in a Fir Tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas

I’m busy as a bee, “wee,”

with cream smeared all over me.

On the seventh day of Christmas

My Mrs. gives to me:

six doughnut holes

three Boston Creams

two sprinkled cakes

and a doughnut in a Fir Tree.

On the eighth day of Christmas

My Mrs. says to me,

“You’re quite a sight to see,

RED LIGHT on your donut spree!”

On the ninth day of Christmas

I’m a Santa full of glee–

but I cannot seem to ski.

On the tenth day of Christmas

My Mrs. steeps some tea

for the ache in my tummy!

On the eleventh day of Christmas

My Mrs. packs for me

and my trip round the deep blue sea.

On the twelfth day of Christmas

My Mrs. kisses me

and I fly for all to see.

On the night of your Christmas,

“kids just leave carrots please,

so I’ll fit down your chimney.”

Spider’s Halloween Hunt

Here is my entry for Susan Leonard Hill’6th Annual Halloweensie Story Contest.  Scroll down to see contest details below.

Spider’s Halloween Hunt

By Kristen Olsen

 

In the light of the moon

hovered a small spider

watching trick or treaters

from her hot air balloon.

 

She spun white sticky webs

from gateposts to doorposts

to trap tasty treats like

sour bats and ghost heads.

 

“I always catch the most,”

small spider liked to sing

as she floated above

sipping cider with toast.

 

Along came a monsoon.

Cold wind halloweensied.

The balloon lost control

and crashed near a lagoon.

 

With candy apple eyes

a toad croaked to spider

“It’s my birthday today,

thank you for my surprise.”

 

The Contest:  write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (title not included in the 100 words), using the words spiderghost, and moon.   Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go under, but not over!)  Get it?  Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people🙂  (And yes, I know 100 words is short but that’s part of the fun and the challenge!  We got nearly 150 fantastic entries last year so I know you can do it!)  Also, you may use the words in any form – e.g. moon, moons, mooned, spidery, ghostly, whathaveyou🙂  No illustration notes please!
