Joe Lasker, Greetings from Within, 1949
A boy needs only a fingernail
and a frosty windowpane
to share the joys of the season.
hold magical messages
J loves M
…and also trains.
Santa is always jolly, but
Skinny Santa = funnier.
Also funny: a little guy carrying a humongous fish.
Fun zig-zags = trees.
Quick circles and lines make them pretty for Christmas.
Put a cat under any Christmas tree and it looks like home.
Airplanes and big ocean liners are fun to dream about
but a bike or scooter fits better in Santa’s sleigh.
A warm hand will open an enchanted porthole.
You can see Christmas all around,
Christmas is almost here!
