Stocking Song on Christmas Eve

by Mary Mapes Dodge

Welcome Christmas! heel and toe,

Here we wait thee in a row,

Come, good Santa Claus, we beg,

Fill us tightly, foot and leg.

Fill us quickly ere you go, –

Fill us til we overflow,

That’s the way! and leave us more

Heaped in piles on the floor.

Little feet that ran all day

Twitch in dreams of merry play,

Little feet that jumped at will

Lie all pink and white and still.

See us, how we lightly swing,

Hear us, how we try to sing,

Welcome Christmas! heel and toe,

Come and fill us ere you go!

Here we hang till someone nimbly

Jumps with treasures down the chimney.

Bless us! how he’ll tickle us!

Funny old Saint Nicholas.

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!!
