By: KayLynn (Thanx, KayLynn!!) In the eyes of: Elmira I had just boarded the Christa, Escaping my father. I was glad to see the 'Cases. Missing Radu's been a bother. Uncertainly, though, I looked 'Round the place. Where had they gotten these decorations? There are no stores in space. "Radu," I said, startled, "What is all this stuff? "Did you get it from the Hil, "Or maybe the Luff?" "No," he said, grinning, "This stuff's from the hold." I wanted to ask more, But did not feel bold. So I silently watched As they scurried around, Placing on the walls The stuff they had found. They were all talking, Quite happy and cheerful. So my worries stopped, And I ceased to be fearful. They put up banners Of bright red and green. The results were spectacular! A sight to be seen. I still kept watching As ornaments were hung On a tree unlike any I'd seen owned by the Spung. And then they started singing Songs they called "carols." All about a small Child And angelic heralds. I felt a good feeling. I like this event! I'll ask them to explain to me What all this meant. I want to know more - This feels so right. But for now, Merry Christmas! And to all a good night. ~Elmira Copyright © 1998 KayLynn. All rights reserved. Used by permission.
