Christmas Greetings ~ From A Fairy To A Child
Lady dear, if Fairies may
For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
‘Tis at happy Christmas-tide.
We have heard the children say —
Gentle children, whom we love —
Long ago, on Christmas-Day
Came a message from above.
Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
They remember it again —
Echo still the joyful sound,
“Peace on earth, good-will to men.”
Yet the hearts must child-like be
Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
All the year is Christmas-tide.
Thus, forgetting tricks and play
For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may;
Merry Christmas, glad New Year!
