Twas The Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night before Christmas Poem
Make it Snow !
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all
Happy Wednesday everyone Janie Here to share a very sweet Christmas card with you. I was fortunate enough to work with Frances Mary II by Kathy Cyr. I love this image, her and her kitty are just to cute.
Do forgive me for putting up the poem but it ties in with my card. I used  Echo Park's A Very Merry Christmas with this piece I  created a fan fold on the card in two different places to give the card so more texture.
Isn't she darling. I thank you for stopping by today and allowing me to share my creation with you. Have a great week
