Huerfano County Christmas

by Carol Dunn

Sing to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”


On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .

Twelve million adobe bugs;

Eleven trips to Pueblo;

Ten deer eating my flowers;

Nine geese flying in circles;

Eight months of wind;

Seven coyotes howling;

Six-foot-tall snowdrifts;

Five cell-phone calls dropped;

Four degrees below zero;

Three broken water lines;

Two of the neighbor’s horses;

And a flicker in a box elder tree.
