I gave birth...to a book!

Here, just in time for Christmas, is the book I wrote about 20 years ago. It is certainly a long time in coming, but it is here and I am celebrating! (Note the bubbly). SO in honor of the release of my published short stories...a little poem...Ahem..

 Twas three days before Christmas,
  and all through the farm,
  Champagne was a flowing,
  And doing no harm.

  The book it was done,
  a reason to party,
  the author just hoped,
  she would look like a smarty.

  She wrote of horses,and pigs
  riding, and chickens,
  Ok, so it is pretty simple reading,
  and certainly not Dickens.

   But give it out as a present,
   the author surely does plan,
   Christmas is near,
   and it is probably better then jam..

   So the children all snuggle
   deep in their beds,
   and hope that the sequel,
   won't fill them with dread.

   'Cause the next funny book will be,
    about Brogan, Cameron and Liam,
    featuring flying squirrels, and half dead bats,
   and how they all ran just to flee 'em..

    So stay tuned, dear readers,
    and don't shed a tear,
    I promise the next one,
    won't take 20 more years.

  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE..AND TO ALL, ANOTHER GLASS OF BUBBLY!
