Christmas Poem

It is still a few days until Christmas and it looks like the boys are getting very restless...

Aniara: Mikko, Caliban, if you calm down for a while I'll read you a Christmas poem... What are you doing anyway?

Mikko: We are playing wheelbarrow!

Aniara: And what now?

Mikko: Now we are a centaur!

Aniara: And a hump-backed one at that!

Aniara: Would you please sit down!

Mikko: We are busy playing "Follow the leader"!

Aniara: Look how nicely Nalle and Apina Kapina are sitting. I bet they would like to hear the Christmas poem.

That seemed to work... The boys finally sat down.

"'Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse,..."

The boys manage to sit quiet through the whole poem which is quite a feat. Caliban looks very thoughtful afterwards.

Caliban: Not a creature....
