THE EVE OF CHRISTMAS


The Night Before Christmas
(A Visit From St. Nicholas)
by Clement Clarke Moore

(Tweaked by Debby & Skye)


'Twis the night before Christmas, when all through our house

Skye was reading her book,

after killing her mouse,

Her stocking was placed by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

Skye was all nestled all snug in her bed,

While visions of raw hides danced in her head;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settle down for a long winter's nap,
When out in the kitchen there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Skye was ringing her bell telling me it was time to go outside!!!!

Now, Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!

Skye did get to meet Rudolph and they talked for awhile.

"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT"

Love, Debby & Skye
