A Lesser Known Ogden Nash Christmas Poem

"Christmas Medication (PartII) is presented here by Peter Rohloff

God rest you merry, Innocents,
Let nothing you dismay,
Let nothing wound an eager heart
Upon this Christmas day.
Yours be the genial holly wreaths,
The stockings and the tree;
An aged world to you bequeaths
Its own forgotten glee.

Soon, soon enough come crueler gifts,
The anger and the tears;

Read the rest here
