and since Christmas day looms,
preparations were ready,
all through the rooms.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
and four kids were all hoping cousins soon would be here.
The Momma was making a dinner ho-hum
while Daddy worked late to avoid Christmas doldrums.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but sweet G-Bear declaring,
"Look what's missing in here!"
Her front loosed tooth alas was no more.
And soon came discussion of Toothfairy lore.
Are quarters delivered at Christmastime too?
Worry not, sweet G-Bear, for this special tooth
deserves two shiny quarters at least!
Surprise, the next morning they were there, a relief.
So, may this toothy smile help your spirits be bright,
Merry Christmas, y'all! To all, a good night.
