CHRISTMAS 2011

   (With thanks to Dr. Seuss and Michelangelo)

 

"Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot.

But the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville, did not."

He stole all Who presents - he took the Who trees.

He tried to make Christmas disappear with the breeze.

But each Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,

Kept singing - and hopeful - without presents at all....

Their joy touched old Grinch, and thrice grew his heart -

And "himself" returned every toy and plum tart!

 

"So welcome Christmas. Bring your cheer.

Cheer to all Whos - far and near.

Christmas Day is in our grasp

As long as we have hands to clasp.

Christmas Day will be

Just as long as we have we.

Welcome Christmas while we stand

Heart to heart and hand in hand"

 

 

 

 

 

Collection of 17th - 18th Century British Furniture, DAVID H. WILSON
