The Man In The Moon Is Santa Claus



The man in the moon is Santa Claus in clear, full imagery.
His beard is full, white and long;
his cheeks are plump with glee.

The man in the moon is Santa Claus encircling you and me.
This watch stance is what he calls
his observatory.

The man in the moon is Santa Claus, one night he "sleighs" the world.
In all boys' and girls' homes
his presents are unfurled.

The man in the moon is Santa Claus with a celestial gaze.
He stays above earthy fray
so bounty he can raise.

The man in the moon is Santa Claus spreading holiday cheer.
Smiles shape with gaiety
from carols that endear.

The man in the moon is Santa Claus reflecting hearts that give.
Generosity is mode
for all who thrive and live.
