      Ode Deer


      by Val John Jennings

      Deer, Oh, Deer, oh lovely host!
      Do you enjoy your Christmas trust?
      You pull the sleigh, with magic born,
      across the sky 'fore Christmas morn.
      Oh. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen,
      Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen,
      and Rudolph, do you recall, the very
      first Christmas in a manger stall?
      Shepherds, sheep, donkeys, and cattle
      witnessed the birth in a barn.
      Throughout the world animals rejoiced
      on the day the Savior was born.
      Your ancestors may, on that glorious day,
      have looked on a beautiful star.
      And known that the marvelous, miraculous,
      birth had occurred in a place rather far.
      To have been chosen, from your kindred,
      to honor His glorious birth and election
      so the world would remember, late in December,
      is your honorable, noteworthy, selection.
      Your existence is fable,
      unlike the stable,
      but your mission is similar to His own;
      For you carry peace and joy
      in a gift or a toy
      so Santa can visit each home.
      The joy that abounds
      as Santa makes rounds
      is seen in each girl and boy.
      To be part of His gift
      and give children a lift
      is indescribably wonderful joy.
