Poem by Ellis Parker Butler
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Little cullud Rastus come a-skippin’ down de street, A-smilin’ and a-grinnin’ at every one he meet; My, oh! He was happy! Boy, but was he gay! Wishin’ “Merry Chris’mus” an’ “Happy New-Year’s Day”! Wishin’ that his wishes might every one come true— And—bless your dear heart, honey,—I wish the same to you!
