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.
A Year With the Fairies.
