Surrounded by Santas

"Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound!

He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot
and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back
 and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses his nose like a cherry.

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth
and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.

 He had a broad face and a little round belly
that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly.

 He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, 
and I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself.

A wink of his eye and twist of his head 
soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread...

...and I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
