'Twas the night before Christmas,
Not a creature was stirring,
The stockings were hung
In hopes that St. Nicholas
The children were nestled
While visions of sugar-plums
And mamma in her 'kerchief,
Had just settled down
When out on the lawn
I sprang from the bed
Away to the window
Tore open the shutters
The moon on the breast
Gave the luster of mid-day
When, what to my wondering
But a miniature sleigh,
With a little old driver,
I knew in a moment
More rapid than eagles
And he whistled, and shouted,
'Now, Dasher! now, Dancer!
On, Comet! on Cupid!
To the top of the porch!
Now dash away! dash away!
As dry leaves that before
When they meet with an obstacle,
So up to the house-top
With the sleigh full of toys,

And he looked like a peddler
His eyes - how they twinkled!
His cheeks were like roses,
His droll little mouth
And the beard on his chin
The stump of a pipe
And the smoke it encircled
He had a broad face
That shook, when he laughed
He was chubby and plump,
And I laughed when I saw him,
A wink of his eye
Soon gave me to know
He spoke not a word,
And filled all the stockings;
And laying his finger
And giving a nod,
He sprang to his sleigh,
And away they all flew
But I heard him exclaim,
'Happy Christmas to all,
