Ah, Tender-sweet December Eve





Ah, tender-sweet December eve
Blue, blue you let your curtain fall
In solstice-song and snowflake throng
And starlight-spangled Christmas carol

The gentle gleam of home-sweet-home
Beams circle-beacons to the street
Across the yard and boulevard
We hear the homeward haste of feet

…where mothers hold their children near
And suddenly the world is right
The wood-smoke curls in dolor swirls
Against the canvas of the night

We serve the soup and say our prayers
And count our blessings one by one
Ah, tender-sweet December eve
How soon another day is done
