A Christmas Carol

by J. R. Eastwood

It is the time when frost and snow
Bring Christmas mirth and mistletoe,
And berries red and holly green,
And silent skies with starlight keen.

It is the time when on the tree
The shrill birds chirp for charity,
And seek for food on wintry days
Along the snow-encumbered ways.

It is the time when God in love
Sends peace on earth from heaven above,
With all the joys that shone for them
Who hailed the Star of Bethlehem!

It is the time when earth is fain
To catch the angels' song again,
Whose carol strains made glad the morn
On which the Holy Child was born!
