This poem was my favorite, when I was three. My mom read it to me. I knew
at that time that santa clause was not real. And when my mom read this to
me, 50 years ago, I stoped not believing in santa clause!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HE IS REAL!!!!!!! HE IS NOT A FAKE!!!!!!! I decided that I wouldn't have
kids so I wouldn't have to put presents under the tree.

I last read this poem about 35 years ago in my Junior High School Library.
It must have made quite an impression on me, since I still remember it, and
Jabez Dawes' name. After all of these years, I suddenly decided to read it
again , and I found this site searching for it. I remember "cries of
pretty please" and him being turned into a jack-in-the-box. Too bad you
couldn't put the poem on this site, because I can't remember any more of

Mr. Bengtsson:

Some 30 Christmases ago I wanted to give my sister a special Xmas gift.
Knowing her love of Ogden Nash I memorized Jabez Dawes and happily recited
it each year for her amusment and enjoyment.

Time has seen the loss of my sister and the dimming of my memory, so in
practicing to resurrect Jabez once again this evening I came across your
web space. To me and I hope to family and friends who have had to put
with my recitations, this wicked lad has come to be a fun companion for our
Holidays Thanks for posting it
