At Christmas Time…

At Christmas Time…

At Christmas time, we deck the hall

With holly branches brave and tall,

With sturdy pine and hemlock bright

And in the Yule log’s dancing light

We tell old tales of field and fight

At Christmas time.

At Christmas time we pile the board

With flesh and fruit and vintage stored,

And mid the laughter and the glow

We tread a measure soft and slow,

And kiss beneath the mistletoe

At Christmas time.

English Traditional Poem
