'Twas the Night of My Party

And all through the house. All the creatures were stirring.
Yes, even the mouse.
The decorations were hung around the kitchen with care.
And soon glitter would soon be just about everywhere.

My party dress was snug, I thought in my head;
but that would not stop me from being feed.
While I in my apron and in my hand, a night cap. I had just settled down for a long winter's craft.

When out in the porch I heard such a clatter.
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the door I flew like a flash, but first making sure to secure my apron's sash.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen leaves,
gave luster to guests with enthusiasm hard to believe.

With a perky attitude so lively and quick. I knew in a moment,
I must fix them a drink!

More rapid then eagles their courses they came, I whistled and shouted and called them by name.
"Rock on Dasher and Dancer. And Prancer and Vixen.
Drink up Comet. On Cupid. Go Donner and Blitzen.
On top of the roof. On top of the wall.
Dance away. Decorate away. Party away, all!"

Then in a twinkling I heard from the booth.
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew my head in and was turning around, the party revelers all came in with a bound.
All dressed in fur and sequins from head to boot, no ones clothes were tarnished
not one spot of soot.

Their eyes how they twinkled, their dimples how merry.
Their cheeks were like roses, and one's nose was like a cherry!

They spoke lots of words but also were hard at work.
All the ornaments got decorated, no one acting a jerk.

I sprang to my post to give my team a good whistle and away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard them exclaim as they drove off in sight,
"What a fabulous party, and we all had a good night."
