Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutters and threw up the
sash. The moon on the breast of the
new-fallen snow gave the lustre of
mid-day to objects below, when
what to my wondering eyes should
appear, but a miniature sleigh,
and eight tiny reindeer, with a
little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be
Staint Nick…
