"THE NIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS "
'Twas night after Christmas, and
all through tho town
The nurses were running, some
up and some down
The doctor was wanted, for
plague on Old Nick,
His visit had made all the little
His cakes were too nice and his
pies were too sweet,
That from morning till night
they could do nothing but
Their hearts were all light, and
peeped out of their eyes,
Their stomachs all tight, and
chock full of mince pies!
They were merry as larks and
no care for; tomorrow,
Unmindful that jjoy is soon fol
lowed by sorrow;
The lights were all out and the
blinds were all closed;
Papa and mamma in deep slum
Tho cat on tho hearth-rug was
licking her paws,
And seemed to be thinking of old
The fire in the chimney burned
cheerful and bright,
And the frost on the panes shone
like crystals of light;
The tea-kettle bubbling before
the warm blaze
Was singing tho dirge of once
The clock on tho .mantle had
just sounded one
And announced that another new
day had begun
When, hark! from the nursery, a
solo of moans,
Then a duet of sobs, with a
chorus of groans,
Broke in on the stillness and
silence of night,
And throw tho whole house in
commotion and fright.
The mother's quick ear iirst en
countered the sound;
She sprangup in bed, and sprang
out with a bound;
But papa had oft witnessed such
And the louder the groans, why
the louder he'd snore.
And, oh! such a sight was ne'er
The children were rolling about
on the floor;
The bed clothes were ruined, the
carpet was spoiled,
And their pretty night dresses
were rumpled and soiled;
The nurse, all bewildered, was
fretting and grieving,
The children in concert were
retching and heaving;
They kicked and they twisted,
and they squirmed all
She was sure that. their bowels
were turned inside out.
4 'Oh, I'm so sick! I shall die of
"I shall never touch Santa
Claus' candy again!"
Poor ma! in a nutter, throw her
Little Bob, with a splutter,
throw up his mince-pies,
And St. Nick, who was peeping,
cried out with a titter:
"In every sweet there is a drop
that is bitter;
But cheer up, my children, you'll
soon bo all right,"
And cracking his whip ho wTas
soon out of sight.
The cries were all over, and all
went to bed;
Sweet slumber soon fell upon
each dizzy head;
The life-blood again freely
coursed through their
;vnu area m s,
of St. Nicholas
With a smile they awoke from
their visions of bliss
As mamma on each
planted a kiss:
And Ihey vowed that in spite of
all sickness and pain
They'd hang up their stockings
next- Christmas nuaiu.
