A Gravatt Christmas Story

Twas 3 weeks before Christmas,
and all through Gravatt,
every creature was stirring,
and even the goats.

The Blob was hung
by the dock with care
in hope that summer campers,
soon would be there.

Then what to my
wondering eyes should appear,
a miniature sleigh
and eight tiny reindeer.
A little old driver
so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment
it must be St. Nick.

And so right then and right there
a question I asked,
"Did you bring us the campers
for this year we asked?"
He looked at me, and I, him
"but it's not even June,"
he said to me then.

"Have some fun and prepare.
Fear not! They are coming!
Please just give them some time
to spend with their Mommies
He looked at me then
and gave a quick wink.
Soon enough they will be here
with such fun they can't think!"

And laying his finger
aside of his nose,
then giving a nod
atop the Blob he rose,
but I heard him exclaim
as he splashed into the lake
"Merry Christmas to all;
come to camp for goodness sake!"

As you can imagine, our maintenance/program staff have put these to good use very quickly! We are immensely blessed by friends like these!
