~ Twas an Evocative Night Before Christmas ~



the night

before Christmas

and all through the house . . .

not a creature was stirring

not even a Jacob . . .

the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

Jake tilted his head to hear what was the matter . . .

and then, in a twinkling, Jake heard on the roof

the prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

“Is that you Santa Paws?”

Happy Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!

~ Clement Clarke Moore
