Great Poetry for Children by Jody Weissler

Cookies for Santa

by Jody Weissler


We’re baking cookies for Santa

because thats what good kids do.

We’re going to add chocolate chips

The recipe is tried and true.


We’re pouring Santa a glass of milk

All that delivering takes its toll.

We hope he likes our home cooked batch

and fits through our chimney’s hole!


Santa must be almost here

because my eyes are getting tired.

The cookies are coming out.

They’re fresh and not expired.


So when I finally go to sleep.

and Santa comes to eat.

He’ll smell the smell of cookies

and take our little treat.
