Ode to Christmas Cookiey by Walter Kreutzer

Ode to a Christmas Cookie:

Thank you for all that you’ve done

Making the holiday season all warm and cozy

Giving me an excuse to bake all weekend

And a reason to get another mug of hot chocolate


Snickerdoodle, Chocolate Chip, Gingerbread

Goodness knows how many I’ve eaten

Over the course of every Christmas

Sugar, sweetness, spice

Going down between glasses of milk


A warm kitchen is one of the things I look forward to most during winter

Smells and heat emanating from the shelves and oven

Sneaking between the trays of baked goods

Grabbing a fistful of delicious, doughy, goodness


The Christmas Tree standing tall, surrounded by gifts

I sit beneath, gorging on the fruits of my successful hunt

Making sure not a crumb can be seen


Thank you, Christmas Cookie

For filling my holidays with sweetness, frosting, and happiness

Sugar, Pinwheel, Gingersnap

You have all helped fill my belly and my spirits


Once Christmas is over, I sit in the kitchen

Eating a biscuit, slowly

Waiting for Christmas to come again

Just so I can get a taste of that sweet treat

Have a good night!
