Reading the poem aloud brings a sense of calm and mystery into the room. In the rush of early morning, When the red burns though the gray And the wintry world lies waiting For the glory of the day. Those four questions in the second verse brought me up a short. Waiting, watching, listening always With full hearts and tender eyes. This year I am going to insist we read this poem first! In the rush of early morning, When the red burns through the gray, And the wintry world lies waiting For the glory of the day, Then we hear a fitful rustling Just without upon the stair, See two small white phantoms coming, Catch the gleam of sunny hair.

From our happy home Through the world we roam One week in all the year, Making winter spring With the joy we bring For Christmas-tide is here. Now the eastern star Shines from afar To light the poorest home; Hearts warmer grow, Gifts freely flow, For Christmas-tide has come. Now gay trees rise Before young eyes, Abloom with tempting cheer; Blithe voices sing, And blithe bells ring, For Christmas-tide is here. Oh, happy chime, Oh, blessed time, That draws us all so near!
