Today I opened wide my eyes,
And stared with wonder and surprise,
To see beneath November skies
An apple blossom peer;
Upon a branch as bleak as night
It gleamed exultant on my sight,
A fairy beacon burning bright
Of hope and cheer.

'Alas! ' said I, 'poor foolish thing,

The Months
by Sara Coleridge

January brings the snow,
makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again.

March brings breezes loud and shrill,
stirs the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet,

Christmas Is Really For The Children
by Steve Turner

Christmas is really
for the children.
Especially for children
who like animals, stables,
stars and babies wrapped

the bells remind us
of the love from up above

Mr. Bingle
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Jingle jangle jingle...
Who remembers Mr. Bingle...
From New Orleans, he was friends with Kris Kringle...

They enjoyed some fun and cheer...
When Kris came to visit with Bingle each year...
The two would celebrate with all the reindeer...

All the kids would come and play...
With Bingle and Kris in his red sleigh...

Threats At Christmas
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
A time for love and joy...
When Santa starts The Wish List...
To bring everyone that perfect toy...

But there are some kids who misbehaved...
Who were naughty throughout the year...
Your name might be missing from Santa’s List...
You know who you are, oh dear...
