If I Were Rudolph

My nose is bright red on Christmas Eve.
Tonight, I drive Santa’s sleigh.
It’s cold and I slide on snowy roofs.
I keep my legs moving and stomp my feet.
When I shake my head, I hear jingle bells.

Some boys jump on the sleigh when Santa is in a house.
Santa almost crashes the sleigh because the boys scare him.
I make sure he doesn’t crash because I’m Rudolph.
I can turn my head and go even when Santa pulls back.
I save Christmas and Santa takes the boys back home.
Happy New Year!

– Chris, age 8
