'Twas a weekend in Poulsbo: A local twist to a classic story
’Twas a weekend in Poulsbo, and all through city hall,
not a public servant was stirring, no one at all.
A box sat empty, up on the third floor,
awaiting donations for Fishline, such as toys, clothes and more.
The mayor had left the building, Saturday at four,
but only one toy was given, and nothing more.
Yet on Monday morning, she saw such a delight,
the box was full to the brim, and was filled overnight.
The City Council was clueless, on Dec. 11,
as to who could have sneaked in, and left all the presents.
But what was known was that they came around late,
on Dec. 7th, or maybe the 8th.
Mayor Becky Erickson explained, "There were 40 or 50 toys."
Like a football, and some dolls, for Poulsbo's girls and boys.
A great pile of gifts from a mystery giver,
who braved the night cold with toys to deliver.
The mayor asked who it was, but there were no traces.
"I asked," she said. "I got nothing but blank faces …
And the building was closed from 4 o'clock on.
I don't know who did it … Santa must have come."
