Winter Sports

The children’s coats are downy white,

And ruddy winter berries bright

Are tam-o’-shanters warm and red

Upon each little golden head.

.

On sleds of holly leaves they coast,

Of silver skates they proudly boast

And snowball fights with tiny forts –

These are their jolly winter sports.

“Quixote Quicksight.”

Quixote Quicksight, quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

A queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quizzed;

If Quixote Quicksight quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

Where’s the queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quiz’d?

Santa And The Fairies!

St. Nicholas and His Aeroplane

 When you have hung your stocking up and crawled into your bed,

St. Nicholas with his fairy crew is sailing overhead,

And on the roofs of children’s homes he pauses in his flight,

While down the chimney goes the crew with gifts for your delight.

.

The Brownies made this aeroplane to carry dear St. Nick,

And now there’s time for every child because he goes so quick.

His reindeer, sleek and fat, stay home and munch their hay and corn,

Delighted that they trot no more from Christmas Eve till morn.

Jack Frost

 Elfin pictures on the pane

Mean Jack Frost has come again;

Lace and ferns and vines and flowers,

Snow-capped peaks and fairy bowers.

.

Castles gleaming opalescent,

Rivers flowing iridescent;

Jewels set in filigree,

All in crystal fantasy.
