Happy holidays!

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 childlike 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!
