THINGS TO DO IF YOU ARE A BELL
By Elaine Magliaro
 
Ride on a reindeer's harness.
Tinkle in the icy air.
Jingle across a Christmas sky.
Sing with a silver tongue.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

What sweet shiny faces--and the perfect photo to accompany your poem (love the "sing with a silver tongue" ending!)

Your What If poem has a lovely rhythm, you can hear the bells tinkling away. Cute girls too, thanks Elaine!

What fun! Your granddaughters are precious and so is the line "Tinkle in the icy air." That made me giggle!
