image of robin
 
ribbon from bird's wing
on which are words
CHRISTMAS
TO YOU

 
 
 
 
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 MISLETOE LOOK DOWN
WHILE PLEDGING DRAUGHTS ARE POUR'D.

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.
