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.

.

SAMBO

Illustration: Sambo & Bo-Peep from Little Bo-Peep And Other Good Stories Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. 1905.

. . . he nearly had a fit at sight of Bo-Peep’s doll – Black Sambo – who sat in the nursery, . . The lambs were safely shut up in their wooden box every night by their little mistress, for she did not want to have to search for them again through glades of trees, unending rooms, or to ask news of them of a stupid real Black Sambo with a swelling face, who sang stupid songs.
