The Saint Nicholas Story
Saint Nicholas builds floating aeries,
near the tops of Christmas trees,
that only the angels and fairies can see.
He is a sage reader of sorts,
he will be your guide and transport,
for roads with no maps or paved course.
He is moved by an immortal song,
heard only by hearts that have lived on,
with a beat that bonds and holds strong.
He lithely glides like a bird,
without a sound or a word,
through the needles of his chosen firs.
He will brighten every advent night,
highlighted by star, moon and tree lights,
from dusk til the new day’s light.
