Three Things Challenge: rattle, holiday, tone

Rattle, please?

Once upon a time 
there was a little boy 
who had a special wish 
for just one special toy. 

He asked to get a rattle 
for a holiday gift 
he never whined or begged, 
never made one riff.  

When holidays did come 
and toys were meant to share 
the little boy was happy 
no nasty tone, nor care. 

And so he got his toy 
because he was a gem. 
His house is full of toys 
he’ll share each one of them.
