HOLLY berries red and bright,
Wealth of candles flickering light,
Christmas in the air!
Childish faces all aglow,
Outside sleigh bells in the snow —
Banished is dull care.

Older wiseheads for the time
Join in sport and song and rhyme —
Happy Christmastide!
Memory brings back golden youth,
Eyes then seeing only truth
Ever at its side.

Joy to-night is crowned the queen
Of the festive Christmas scene.
May her rule be long!
None can claim a rebel heart
With her followers forms a part —
Theirs a gladsome song!
