The Christmas Parade: a poem by Jeanie Axton

Full of importance
On Pageant Day
Our canine friends
Are out to play

Santa costumes
Christmas grins
White beards flowing
From hairy chins

Music and laughter
Christmas cheer
The town comes alive
This time of year

Thousands of locals
Line the street
Applauding our friends
As they wag to the beat

The talk of the town
For the year to come
The dogs of Mt Gambier
Are second to none

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Don’t forget a special treat for your furry members on Christmas Day.

Jeanie Axton lives with her husband Nick, two dogs, two cats and three chickens in the beautiful South East of South Australian Mt Gambier, famously known for its Blue Lake. A secondary teacher at a local Lutheran College, Jeanie has been dabbling in the area of children nonsense poems for many years. She expresses the comedy in animal antics and in her poetry.
