Gold ring, halfling,
Man gone, but for song,
Wizard fell, into hell,
Mirror of elf, see the south,
Forest bent, met an Ent,
Isengard strong, soon to be gone.

Into the black land, they will stand.

Gold ring, halfling.

Delphine Writes To Santa

To Santa: I Would Like

  • a doll
  • a marble run
  • a marble [in case they don't ship them with the marble run, I guess]
  • a fairy dress
  • a book of poems
  • a Word Girl chapter book
  • a deck of cards
  • an iPod (earphones) [she doesn't like to leave things to chance]
  • a watch
  • a mug I can paint

I asked her about the iPod (because sad to say, we don't listen to much music) - she said she wanted to play games.

Delphine Writes About Santa

Santa Claus's House. By Delphine

Everyone knows that Santa brings us presents and lives at the North Pole. But what does his house look like? It has a Santa chair and a fireplace with the fire usually on and smells like cookies.

I have no idea where she learned that rhetorical question structure, but I think it's brilliant! Also apparently "usually" is very hard to spell.
