Whose duties never let him pause,
Appeared on Christmas eve, bedight

He scooted, leaving sleds and skates
And folderols. at every door.
"Hal Up to '98 or so," '
Said Uncle Sam, "my work was done
With this, but now I fear-ho, hoi
My task is scarcely yet begun I''
So off he sailed across the sweep
Of salty waters, mile on mile,
And gladdened every chick asleep
-' In Porto Rico's placid isle.
