ACROSS THE LIVING ROOM CHIMNEY PIECE

Across the living room chimney piece
hung stockings made of felt and fleece
awaiting gifts going in by Santa Claus
come Christmas Eve — Ho-Hos! and Ha-Has!

For young hearts Mommy and Daddy,
for younger Gary and his dog Lucky,
for youngest Nola and her cat Tommy.

Across the living room chimney piece
hung stockings weighted with toys and treats
awaiting gifts going out by hands and paws
come Christmas Day — Ahas! and Hurrahs!

For young hearts Mommy and Daddy,
a thimble and tee tie clip;
for younger Gary and Lucky,
a baseball and rawhide chip;
for youngest Nola and Tommy,
a lace doll and dried catnip.

HOLIDAY HOUSE

Up the bunk bed ladder, with a hop,
Little Susie met three angels at the top…
UP THE BUNK BED LADDER

Down to the kitchen caroling Granddad goes…
DOWN TO THE KITCHEN CAROLING

Kitty-cornered dining room —
a feline foursome spat!
KITTY-CORNERED DINING ROOM

Up with the Poinsettia, and grow,
Up with the Holly and Ivy;
Up with the Mistletoe,
Evergreen, all —
WINTERTIDE
