December






HARRIET F. BLODGETT

Oh! holly branch and mistletoe.
And Christmas chimes where'er we go.
And stockings pinned up in a row!

And stars its many candles be.
Oh! sing a carol joyfully
The year's great feast in keeping!

IV

An angel held a candle bright.
And led three wise men by its light
To where a child was sleeping.
