Short Funny Christmas Poems


~ Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball, 

As perfect as could be, 

I thought I’d keep it as a pet, 

And let it sleep with me. 

I made it some pajamas, 

And a pillow for its head, 

Then last night it ran away, 

But first - it wet the bed! 



                   A Chubby Snowman 

~ Anon

A chubby little snowman 

had a carrot nose. 

Along came a bunny, 

and what do you suppose? 

That hungry little bunny, 

looking for some lunch, 

Grabbed that snowman’s nose, 

Nibble, nibble, crunch! 



About November

"November comes 
And November goes, 
With the last red berries 
And the first white snows.

With night coming early, 
And dawn coming late, 
And ice in the bucket 
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn 
And the kettles sing, 
And earth sinks to rest 
Until next spring."
-  Elizabeth Coatsworth

"A Little Elf"

A little elf sat in a tree
painting leaves
to throw at me

Leaves of yellow
and leaves of red
came tumbling down
                                                                   about my head
