Christmas Mittens  by Marchette Chute

I wanted a rifle for Christmas,
I wanted a bat and a ball,
I wanted some skates and a bicycle,
But I didn’t want mittens at all.

I wanted a whistle
And I wanted a kite,
I wanted a pocketknife
That shut up tight.
I wanted some boots
And I wanted a kit,
But I didn’t want mittens one little bit.

I told them I didn’t like mittens,
I told them as plain as plain.
I told them I didn’t WANT mittens,
And they’ve given me mittens again!

    And I WANT mittens! And, I know I’m getting them because I already picked them out while shopping at the Shaker Craft Fair with my sister in law. And she’s getting a small purse made of tapestry with adirondack chair motif, which she picked out. Merry Christmas Everyone!
