"Bells and Whistles," a Christmas Poem by Sierra July, Frequent Contributor

Bells and Whistles
Sierra July

All kids’ ears strained to hear,
Bells that brought a chorus
Reindeer hooves, trudging boots,
Milk sips, cookies crunches,
Satisfied ho-ho-hos

The bells on the reins began it all
And usually set off whistles when
They wound up heard
In pleasant dreams

Poet's Notes: This poem is sort of inspired by Christmas carols. I thought of the “song” children waiting on their presents would most want to hear and began to write of the sounds that Santa's jingling sled would bring. I figure with enough anticipation any pleasant sounds can become music to the ears.
