Santa’s se­cret

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

If you haven’t got a chim­ney, what

does Santa do?

How does he get to see you if he can’t

come down a flue? Does he get in through a win­dow, or

sim­ply use a door?

Or come up through a trap­door in the

bed­room floor?

Does he squeeze in through the

key­hole?

Or per­haps a let­ter­box?

To de­liver all his presents and pack

them in your socks?

Does he wrig­gle from a plug­hole, or

pop up through the loo?

Drop down from the sky­light? There is some­thing he must do. Could he crawl in past the flap that lets in locked out cats just be­low the row of hooks used for

hanging hats?

Per­haps he casts a spe­cial spell or says

a magic word?

I don’t be­lieve it can be that – it’s sim­ply

too ab­surd!

I’ve won­dered and I’ve puz­zled but I

still can’t work it out.

Yet ev­ery year he man­ages – of that

there is no doubt.

I sup­pose that if the truth be told, ‘tis a se­cret HE should keep and that we should sim­ply won­der, as on Christ­mas Eve we sleep
