A Christmas Evening

Wow! It was Christmas Day
My dad had been begging me to go
We packed up our guns and started on our way
We traveled down the trail sprinkled with snow.

As we settled in the tall tree stand,
I felt like my dad's number one fan.
I sat there and kept very still
My whole body caught a sudden chill

Suddenly, out he stepped from the weeds
Was this really happening to me?
I could just not believe
This deer was bigger than any I had ever seen!

After I made that far, but clean, shot
I knew I hit im in just the right spot.
We got to him, laying as still as he could be.
That's when I felt dad wipe the blood on me!
