Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters And threw up the sash. Slide 6: The moon on the breast Of the new-fallen snow Gave the luster of mid-day To objects below, When what to my wondering eyes should appear? Slide 7: But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer. With a little old driver, So lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. Slide 8: More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; "Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! Slide 9: On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all" Slide 10: As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky; So up to the housetop His coursers they flew, Slide 11: With a sleigh full of toys and St. Nicholas too. And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof, The prancing and pawing Of each little hoof. Slide 12: As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. Slide 13: He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; Slide 14: A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddlar just opening his pack. Slide 15: 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 of his chin was a white as the snow. Slide 16: The slump of his 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 bowlful of jelly. Slide 17: He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself, A wink of his eye and a turn of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; Slide 18: He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; Slide 19: He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like a down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim As he drove out of sight, “Merry Christmas to all, And to all a good night." You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
