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 Chrismus an Happy New-Years Day!
Wishin that his wishes might every one come true
Andbless your dear heart, honey,I wish the same to you!
