TO FATHER CHRISTMAS

  • FATHER CHRISTMAS, will you please
  • Bring us lots of books and toys,—
  • Fill our stockings, deck the trees
  • With all sorts of shining joys,
  • So that every child who sees
  • Makes a loud and happy noise!
  • Come with merry sound of bells
  • Breaking through our midnight sleep,
  • Rousing hamlets, citadels,
  • Prompting little heads to peep—
  • If they see you, no one tells,
  • ’Tis a secret that we keep.
  • Come with snowy coverlet,
  • Spread it over field and town
  • When the hasty sun is set,
  • And the night drops softly down;
  • Little children don’t forget
  • Your rosy face and holly crown!
