 True Love and Affection

May every hour that fleets away,
Bring blessings bright with thee to stay,
True blessings all thy life to cheer,
To shield from harm, protect from fear!
And if there better blessings be,
Such blessings do I crave for thee!

A Gift To Santa

Note, titled "A Gift to Santa."

I Sent dear Santa Claus a note:
"Please bring me a sled." I wrote;
"I love you, Santa, yes I do,
"I'd like to make a gift to you,
But, oh, dear me, I cannot tell
The sort of present would please you well;
And so I send you only this:
A great big black, black, inky kiss."
