Rest upon a pudding made with plum.
Christmas is near,
Putting smiles on faces glum.
Love will grow,
In hearts dressed for love.
A tree bright,
An angel peers down from above.
What a treat,
When served with beverages festive.
With nary a soul that’s restive.
Bells that ring,
A service of children’s design.
Christ is near,
Source of cheer,
In a manger of another time.
