0. L. LONG,
L AST night I crept across the snow
Where only tracking rabbits go,
And there I waited, quite alone
Until the Christmas radiance shone.
At midnight twenty angels came,
Each white and shining like a flame,
*At midnight twenty angels sang,
The stars swtyg out like bells, and rang.
They lifted me across the hill,
They bore me in their arms until
A greater glory greeted them,
It was the town of Bethlehem. 4
And gently, then, they set me down,
All worshiping that holy town,
And gently, then, they bade me raise
My head to worship and to praise.
And gently, then, the Christ smiled down,
Ah, there was glor) in that towni
It was as if the world were free
And glistening in purity.
There, In that vault of crystal blue,
It was as if the world were new,
And myriad angels, file on file,
Gloried in the Christ-child's smile.
It was so beautiful to see,
Such glory for a child like me.
So belautiful. it does not seem
It could have been a Christmas dreamt
