#100WCGU – Wk70 – Prompt: Twas the night before Christmas – 105 words – “The Choir”

31 Dec

Now Robert! Now John and Suzie and Jill!

Stop fighting and twitching, it’s time to be still.

This practise, the last, before evening time come,

There’s no more chances given to some.

Twas the night before Christmas and all round the town,

The children had gathered, not one with a frown.

Their voices rose high as they carolled their song,

This was their night, they’d waited so long.

The songs they were sung with voices so clear,

With parents all thinking this ends one more year.

Now pick up your children and take them to bed,

It’s my time to go and soothe aching head.

    Very nice! I love the way you reuse Santa’s call to the reindeer.

      Thanks for the comment.

      Many years teaching and many children needing to be called… I felt the idea fitted Santa’s call to the reindeer.

    I can feel the children’s excitement fizzing.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The prompt made me think of many experiences working with children as they prepared for performances. 🙂
