    My first Sinterklaas Poem this year.

    In two days it is package-evening here. This is the end of the Sinterklaashttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas period.

    Grown ups often write poems to each other(that are supposed to be from Sinterklaas) to accompany the gift. The poem is meant to be nice. It can be a bit teasing(about someones bad habits,) but not mean. You select who you buy the gift by drawing names. I did this on a Dutch forum I am on. I received a package and send one out to someone else. Tonight we will open the gifts at 21:00 and I am very curious about the poem I got and about what's in the package.

    A rough(clipped and altered) translation of a Sinterklaas poem by me. It runs smoother in Dutch(I promise)

    Dear Krista,

    Sinterklaas was in thoughts
    about a present that Krista would like lots
    She had turned 30 this year
    and at the thought of her advanced age Sinterklaas wiped a tear

    Piet said she still liked to have fun
    even though another fase of her life had begun
    she was now a mother of two
    but her big mouth had stayed too.

    She is used to getting her way
    but in all honesty Sint had to say
    that she was still a sweet child at heart
    A fine woman, strong and smart.

    Sinterklaas had no idea what to buy
    for a woman that catches the eye
    She is a real lady with a bold streak
    streetwise, but also quite chique.

    Piet suggested something to make her beautiful
    that would be something useful.
    Sinterklaas agreed with the smart piet
    that would be a good present indeed.

    So dear Krista, my child
    stop letting your thoughts run wild
    Here is the present I spoke about
    You deserve it, no doubt.

    Love,

    Sint & Piet
