It was really quite maddening

Watching them all haggling

Over the old lady’s prices

While holding many devices

She was frail and she was old

And from the look of her quite cold

She was selling some of her wares

At several markets and some fairs

Not for need or want or fun

But for those who had none

The money that she did raise

Went for Christmas Holidays

For those far less fortunate

Without thought or argument

To my eyes she brought a tear

When I saw a twinkle dear

She was not saddened at all

As she headed to the mall

All the items that did not sell

She dropped into a carousel

Stuffed handmade puppies and kittens

Along with scarves and some mittens

From within her pockets large and deep

She gathered the money not a cent to keep

And into Santa’s collection box it went

For all along this had been her intent
