Donkey’s Wish

Dylan was a shy and quiet little donkey, a bit different from the rest

His heart, however, was so enormously big that it filled out his fluffy chest

The farmer worried that he would be unable to safely do his daily chores

So, while the others did all the heavy work Dylan had to stay indoors

As Christmas Eve crept near it began to snow and poor Dylan’s sadness grew deep

Wishing he could just be useful in some way, he softly cried himself to sleep

But at this magical time of year things can happen and his wish was secretly heard

A messenger was sent from the North Pole in the form of a special little bird

Sweet beautiful bird song gently woke Dylan up the very next day

A little robin redbreast was sat staring at him in a bed of glistening golden hay

“I can help you” said the bird, “but from here you must now leave”

Dylan’s heart was brave and true, so he joyfully decided to believe

Robin led him through an overgrown hedgerow path guarded by a fox,

Dylan’s heart thumped as there stood a very old and faded red postal box

It was glittering strangely, tucked behind a wall of Ivy hidden from view

It was certainly magical and could only be found by those who truly knew

“Now remember your special wish” said Robin and Dylon closed his eyes

With a woosh a letter appeared in his mouth much to his surprise

“Post it through here” smiled the Robin “and your wish shall be granted “

As the letter dropped it glowed from inside for it was truly enchanted

When Christmas Eve arrived, the donkeys were worried Dylon was nowhere to be seen

Suddenly a distant tinkling of bells drew them to run out and look up to the night sky

Gasping they saw their beloved Dylon flying up high with the reindeer with a smile that beamed

His wish had come true, he was now the happiest of donkeys and bursting with pride

So never give up on your dreams, whatever they are, for you really never know

Someone just might be listening, someone to whom all your secret wishes go.
