The Christ­mas List

The People's Friend Special - - TRAVEL -

Emily was talk­ing; writ­ing out her Christ­mas list,

Adding all those ex­tras she thought she might have missed.

“If Santa brings me ev­ery­thing, what a heavy sack! What a most enor­mous load to carry on his back!

And if he did bring ev­ery­thing, some chil­dren might be sad To see the toys and books and games and lovely things I had,

If they had only one or two, No, no, I see, it wouldn’t do.

Of course, I don’t ex­pect to get Ev­ery­thing on my long list – and yet

I do so hope that I shall find

He’s brought the things I’ve un­der­lined!”
