T'was the Night of the Drawing...

T'was the night of the drawing
& all through the land,
vintagesusie & friends
sat wringing their hands.

The present was placed
by the tree with much care
& a feeling of wonder
hung thick in the air.

Will it be me?
thought Trisha & Cindy.
Might I be the winner?
dreamed Debbie & Wendy.

A cowboy hat
will determine our fate,
if only she'd tell us
my God, I can't wait!

The silence was deafening,
every breath was held tight.
The moment approached
as the moon shone so bright.

In her cowboy boots,
all dressed up for the show,
vintagesusie looked stunning in
the twinkle light glow.

She held out her hand
& went right to her work,
pulled a name from the hat
& then turned with a jerk.

Reading aloud
the name she did give,
while praying the losers
would still want to live.

Pappy's Cowgirl,
Congrats my Sweet Heart,
let me give you a twirl!"

Thanks friends for playing,
it's been such a delight,
Happy Holidays to all
& to all a Good Night!
