Poem42.Oh! Santa where were you?

Oh!  Santa where were you?

Oh! my Santa where were you
we had gathered to welcome you
from dear kids to great grandma
aunties, uncles waited your way.

Around a camp fire we gathered
songs and dances of all kind
jokes,plays all was there
but all was waiting you oh! dear.

Enjoyment in the open ground
nobody went away from there
all the family around the fire
celebrations went  without you.

After midnight when all  tired
each went inside our own houses
we were so happy be together
enjoying with all for  first time.

But then you were on our  mind
why and why you didn't come,
Oh! Santa did you forget ?
or were you  busy somewhere else?

Rashmi,
This is an age old question that is repeated but never ever got answered. You treated it in a clever way playing with words. Very fascinating!

Thank you for visiting and Happy New Year to you!

Even though Santa did not come in this poem, you GATHERED together with family, and that is the most important thing.
