[recto:] A Happy Christmastide / RAPHAEL TUCK & SONS [verso:] What shall I wish thy Christmas day to be? / A merry day when parted friends shall meet? / A happy day when friendly hearts shall greet / And wish the seasons compliments to thee? / Nay nay accept a fonder wish from me: / Calm be the day with hallowed happiness / A day that comes to comfort thee and bless / The sweetest bar in Time's sweet melody! / A day of peace among life's work a days / A hallowed day that comes the Sabbath calm; / A day when Memory roams thro' blissful ways / And floats around thee with their Rose's balm. / A night when Care from every home is far / And all is bright as thy Redeemer's Star! / Samuel K.
