Christmas Eve was coming; the presents were all bought.
The pies cooled from the oven, peace and quiet Aunt Sadie sought.
Stockings hung by the fireplace as she nestled in her chair,
Pulling a blanket across her lap, she glanced up toward the stairs,
Suddenly from nowhere someone was sliding down the rail,
Landed at her feet right on the poor cat's tail!
Aunt Sadie took off running, but when she finally looked back,
She realized the man in red, was merely Uncle Jack.
His eyes, how they sparkled. He had a mischievous grin upon his face.
He knew without a doubt she would put him in his place.
With one hand on her hip, her toe tapping the floor,
She said, "Now Jack it's time you get yourself on out the door".
"The children are all waiting for Santa to appear,
Now don't be late, just hurry! Go spread some Christmas Cheer.
When you return we'll cut ourselves some fresh baked pumpkin pie,
Till then, I think I'll just enjoy more peace and quiet."
