And all through the house . . .
the company is gone, the cupboard's not bare
for Christmas goodies there still is to share.
We've put away presents
And cleaned up the house
With Dolly at my feet,
And a pot of tea nearby,
And leftover Christmas mince pie
I do on the day after Christmas as I always do
It's time to thank friends near and far
For their thoughtfulness and kindnesses
this Holiday season.
It's a ritual I enjoy.
