19 created by r.a.marifosque ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas By: Major Henry Livingston Jr.

20 created by r.a.marifosque ‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house / Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse / The stockings were hung by the chimney with care / In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there. //

21 created by r.a.marifosque When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter / I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter / Away to the window I flew like a flash / Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. //

22 created by r.a.marifosque With a little old driver, so lively and quick, / I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick./ More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, / And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; //

23 created by r.a.marifosque "Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN! / On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONDER and BLITZEN!/ To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! / Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!" //

24 created by r.a.marifosque And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof / The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. / As I drew in my head, and was turning around, / Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. //

25 created by r.a.marifosque He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, / And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; / A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, / And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. //

26 created by r.a.marifosque His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! / His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! / His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, / And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow; //

27 created by r.a.marifosque He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,/ And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, / And laying his finger aside of his nose, / And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; //

28 created by r.a.marifosque He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
