Subject(s): Christmas; Nativity, The


DECEMBER comes, snows come,
Comes the wintry weather;
Faces from away come --
Hearts must be together.
Down the stair-steps of the hours
Yule leaps the hills and towers --
Fill the bowl and hang the holly,
Let the times be jolly.
Day comes, and night comes
And the guests assemble --
Once again the old dream comes
That I would dissemble.
Falls a shadow 'cross the floor,
Seen! -- and is seen no more.
0 that memory would forego
The hanging of the Mistletoe.
