Go to and click on: i WITH GRACEFUL STROKES (A December fantasy) With graceful strokes they streak across the sky, With silent touch they land upon the roof, With patient stance and chimney standing nigh They wait for Santa's call to take to hoof. They ride again to take their sleigh on high; Then land again upon a building top And wait for jolly Santa's urgent cry To prance away and make another stop. So on it goes, throughout the frozen night; From house to house they do what must be done Unseen, unheard until the morning light When they return to greet their polar sun. Enduring freezing skies throughout the passing years, They help their Santa bring to all the eirth good cheers. Sal,atore'(Sam) Catalano .........
