IS THERE A SANTA?
Is there a Santa Claus, mother,
""Who brings to us love and Joy,
And a great pack full of presents.
Of book, nud skate and to) ?
Boes he come from the froien North
land, Where Ibc snow lies white and still,
With bis loaded sleigh and reindeer.
Our btocklngs and trees to fill?
Or Is there a fairy o dainty,
Who drives a butterfly team?
Does she carry a wand of magic.
And the gossamer thread of a
Docs she come from a land ot sun
shine. And Coat on a moonbeam bright.
And leave to us gifts and blessings
For the happy Christmas l ghtb?"
And I gazed In the face so tender.
And the ees so clear and sweet,
And stoppod in their path of labor
The tread ot my aching Ret,
And 1 brushed from mj eyes so wear),
The dust ot material life.
To enter the laud ot childhood,
Where beaut nnd faith are rife.
And I saw with a clearer vision
The real things of the soul.
r.er tue seinan greeds and passions
OI our spirits have taken loll.
And farrn u H.h , M"f
And far through the snow wlnd-drivon,
I could see a figure form,
It was built of the heart of childhood
Though It rode on the wings of u'.iples were dlameti knlly opposed to
.,-, .. , " . " .
srm. bis own, and who In jooia gone bv
, Mood lu the ranks of an ami) which
'Twas the heart un tout bed by siugiug (lie prcnidout believes sought to dls
Which can laugh, and cheer and
Which will scatter its blessed treas
ures Wherever man may live.
So I said, "O, yos, my darliug.
It wo are good aud kind.
On tho dawn of our Savior's birtbda)
A treasure we'll surely find.
Aud we'll welcome Santa' coming
With feast, and dance, and oug. !
And open our hearts to his message,,
And bo geu'rous.
and Mad, and
He brings to the heart thut love him,
The small, sweet joys of lite.
That are our great guuportcrs
In the dally toil and strife "
In the glow of tho sun aud moonbeam
I saw a fair) arise,
Twas the lore ot a holy spirit
Thut came as a great surprise.
For ho that glvoth freely.
Ho also shall receive;
And the form of outward giving
Is a symbol we do believe,
Of the generous bea.l and leader
That's full of tbe Kite of uiau.
That longs to serve most freely,
And to help where'er It can,
"Ycb, there are the mossangsrs, dear
le. That tbe Christ child send from
The Santa of innocent pleasure,
And the fairy of generous lore."
