Jolly In Spite Of Himself

I'm seeing a little sparkle
in the eyes of my grandchildren
these days. They visited 
the "man in red"  at the mall,
 each reading to him
their  list of wanted 
and hoping
to receive..... toys.
In my painting of ole' Santa,
{Santa Garland}
I've imagined him looking into
the eyes of a child, who's describing
that special toy.
I like the whole idea of
a goodly man, 
jolly in spite of himself,
bringing  toys to children.
