The shining holly hangs upon the wall, lts scarlet clusters gleaming In the light Of ruddy flre glow, and tho welcome sound Of silver laughter; ripples through tho room, From youthful volees, whilst tho mistletoe Ita white, tranparontbeadlets temptiugly Hangs t)Vr tlicir aunny heads. Now kith and tin Aro groupoíl in elrcle round thocheery hearth, Eaeh Uing his experience of the yrnr, For souie thuro bo that only meet at Yulo. The gray haired grandshue sagely nods his heaC What time the prattlo of the four-year old- The golden feroBMd youngling of the Hoek- Is poured iuto his ear; and on his knees, Eager to prato, tloth she, wee fairy, sit, The household darling of a score of hearts. In yonder mug armchair sits grandinamma, Whiist ten year Tommy stials beside lier knee, Knowing fuU wefl, the bright eyedt saucy rogue, The hiddeii toft spot in the old dame's heart; And witli a lorlng, half regretful gazo, Iiook ou tho children'B parenta, carried back To tho "laug nyua" when they themselves wet biest In childhood's happy, glad unconscioiisness Of illü to come ; and so, f orgetting Time, They in thuir trtxisured blossoma blooiu again.
