Nash's Carol for Children

Thanks to Rebecca Irwin for posting this fine poem.

A Carol for Children

Ogden Nash

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.

It's such a nice poem. I click on the full version and read it, really really nice. What if I use this to rock our son. My wife Sodalin always read it when she takes our son on jogging strollers. He did seem to love it. I wrote it down already and share it with my friend. Thank you!!!
