Little Orphan

written by: Mary Bone


Little orphan on the street,
looks in store windows
at yummy things to eat.
His cheeks are rosy
as he looks around
at people dressed so cozy.
Little orphan on Christmas morn,
looked so sad and forlorn.
Lights were shining,
so merry and bright.
Good neighbors brought
a basket full of food and delight.
They adopted little orphan
into their home.
Christmas was never the same
little orphan got a family and 
a new name.



I remember looking into store windows and wishing for a special baby doll and cried to get it. My parents said I wanted the doll so bad, that they went in and bought it for me. That was a great Christmas!
