Santa's Round Belly

The theme for this week's Heads or Tails is ROUND. Join in the fun here!

His belly is round,
Not lean and fit,
It jiggles, it wiggles,
And not just a bit.

Round and round,
A circumference so large,
Who’d want it different,
For this man in charge?

His round belly defines him,
And round cheeks to boot,
Who is this jolly man?
He’s the man with the loot!

Bringing good little kids
Their trinkets and toys,
His legacy forever
Bringing Christmas joys.

Round belly and all,
A loveable old elf,
Thinking of others
Instead of himself.

Red suit covering belly,
Black boots on his feet.
Santa the round fellow
Is a delight and a treat.

  1. Your blog is so festive and pretty!!!
    Your poem reminds me of something, though.

    It was the second Christmas with hubby and we wouldn't be married for another couple years. But he always drove across the state to spend weekends and holidays with me, so he was there on Christmas Eve when my kids came and we exchanged gifts and then played games.

    One game we played was where we had to read a word, then give fast clues to get the others to guess what the word was.

    The word one of my kids got was "Santa Claus." His clue was "He's fat and comes at Christmas."

    One of my other kids shouted out "MIKE!"

    We all had a good laugh over this.. and still do. :)
