'Twas the Week Before Christmas

by Maggie Junkin

'Twas the week before Christmas
And all through the farm
Not a creature was stirring
Without an alarm

The red barn
Was adorned in boughs of holly
Looking so festive
And oh so jolly

All the horses and ponies were
Tucked in their stalls
While their riders were busy
 Shopping the malls

Ponies were munching
Quietly on hay
Seemingly enjoying
The holiday

Show horses were blanketed
All toasty and warm
With dreams of winter circuit
To arrive before the snow storm

Back in the feed room
Stockings were hung
The barn mice were gathering
As carols were sung

The barn cat was snuggled
In the tack room with care
Waiting for Santa
To soon be there

'Tis the night before Christmas
And I wish everyone
The merriest of Christmas’s

And much Holiday fun
