Ring and Run- Part 2

Here are the last three days of poems and gifts for our Ring and Run!



Ten lords a leaping would be an awesome gift,
But they got stuck while jumping through a white snowdrift.
We had to be content, you see, to watch the popcorn fly.
So we’ve added a sweet topping to it for you to try.
(big tin of popcorn)

Those eleven pipers piping reminds us of our plumber,
To leave him on the doorstep would be a real bummer.
Now make your water piping hot, and fill your cups with care.
We’re giving you some hot chocolate we know you’ll love to share.
(hot chocolate)

We simply can’t believe this game is almost through.
We’ve had a jolly time bringing these gifts to you.
With only one more night, don’t you wish you knew,
Just exactly who we are and why we’re doing this for you?


Christmas Eve has arrived, and on this our last night,
One dozen drummers would be a grand sight.
But the noise of their drums would hurt your head,
So eat all these cookies we bring you instead.

The thing to now remember, if you’ve had lots of fun
When next December rolls around you make the nightly runs.
Make sure you pick your family with tender, loving care
‘Cause its fun to get to spoil them at this special time of year.

And so we wish you a joyous Noel,
We know that you’re hoping our name we will tell.
But our name stays a secret, we just cannot share.
It wouldn’t be right, no it wouldn’t, so there!
Merry Christmas!

  4. Shannon,

    I could not find Part 1 of Ring & Run. Would it be possible for you to email me the complete poem? I thought I had copied it before but couldn't find it to do it this year. So I wanted to copy it and make sure I put a copy of it in with my decorations.

    Hope you are having a great holiday season.
