Words:

A Merry
Christmas
 

A BLITHE AND
JOYOUS WELCOME
TO THE BERRIES AND THE LEAVES,
THAT HANG ABOUT
OUR HOUSEHOLD WALLS
IN DARK AND
RUSTLING SHEAVES :
UP WITH THE HOLLY AND THE BAY,
SET LAUREL ON THE BOARD,
AND LET THE MISTLETOE LOOK DOWN
WHILE PLEDGING
DRAUGHTS ARE POUR'D.

holly and mistletoe branches)

 
 
 
 
 
 

BUT THERE MUST
BE SOME HALLOW'D
BLOOM TO GARLAND WITH THE REST,
ALL, ALL MUST
BRING TOWARD THE WREATH
SOME FLOWERS IN THE BREAST ;
FOR THOUGH GREEN
BOUGHS MAY THICKLY GRACE
LOW ROOF OR PALACE DOME ;
WARM HEARTS
ALONE WILL TRULY SERVE
TO DECK A CHRISTMAS HOME.
