T'was a Party
T'was the last day of finals and all through the house
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Upstairs were blankets,
pillows and beds;
while movies were waiting to fill up their heads.
Nyla in her splendor and I with my tea
had just settled in to watch some TV.
When what to our wondering eyes should appear
but a minivan packed
with eight sophomores this year.
More rapid than coursers they barged through the door,
discarding coats and shoes on the floor.
They wasted no time but went straight to their gifts.
With oohing and ahhing and a few laughing fits.
Secret Santa was the game and it was a delight;
the gifts for each girl had been selected just right.
Next on the list was eating the goodies:
pizza and sausages, chips, candies and cookies.
Stories to tell and stories to hear.
Some stories were really not for mom’s ear.
The smiles and laughter carried on through the night
I must say these girls, were more than alright.
Then laying a finger aside of their noses
and giving a nod, up the stairses they roses.
Though two floors apart, it remains a riddle
I got so little.
So, mothers of teenagers, lend me your ear
if a party is something you might try this year.
You are sure to be a hero when all’s said and done,
Merry Christmas to ALL and to ALL a good night!
