Gift Hounds

Gift hounds circa 1950s

To parents everywhere this holiday season who still want to keep Santa Claus a secret..

Gift Hound

My little bloodhound
sniffs out unwittingly
my most secret gift hideouts:
birthdays
Christmas
Valentine’s
Easter

Amazingly, in his hunt
sometimes the prey
falls right on top of
his inquisitive head
and I hear him howl,
“Mommy, what is this?”
And I give up
as he holds up in triumph
his latest find.
