Let him gnaw, forsooth, with his freezing tooth, On our roof tiles, till he tire; But we care not a whit, as we jovial sit Before the blazing fire. Come, lads, let's sing, till the rafters ring; Come, push the can about;— From our snug fireside this Christmas-tide We'll keep old Winter out. —THOMAS NOEL The First Snow Fall The snow had begun in the gloaming, And busily all the night Had been heaping field and highway With a silence deep and white. Every pine and fir and hemlock Wore ermine too dear for an earl, And the poorest twig on the elm tree Was ridged inch deep with pearl.
JAMES FERGUSON Wee Davie Daylicht Wee Davie Daylicht Keeks ower the sea Early in the morning Wi' a clear e'e; Waukens a' the birdies That were sleepin' soun'— Wee Davie Daylicht Is nae lazy loon.

Come, bonnie bairnie, Come awa' to me; Cuddle in my bosie, Sleep upon my knee;— Wee Davie Daylicht Noo has clos'd his e'e In among the rosy clouds Far ayont the sea.

" An' just afore we bed oorsel's, We look at oor wee lambs; Tam has his airm roun' wee Rab's neck, An' Rab his airm roun' Tam's.
