Daily Dose

From The Best Poems of Christmas, compiled by Edward A. Bryant


"Come, guard this night the Christmas Pie,
That the Thiefe, though ne'er so slie,
With his Flesh-hooks don't come nie
To catch it

From him who all alone sits there,
Having his eyes still in his care,
And a deale of nightly feare,
To watch it."

From Hesperides, by Robert Herrick
