In The Week When Christmas Comes

a poem by Eleanor Farjeon

This is the week when Christmas comes.

Let every pudding burst with plums, 
And every tree bear dolls and drums, 
In the week when Christmas comes.

 :

Let every hall have boughs of green,
With berries glowing in between, 
In the week when Christmas comes.

.:

Let every doorstep have a song
Sounding the dark street along,
In the week when Christmas comes.

Bring some sprays of winterberries indoors.:

Let every steeple ring a bell
With is joyful tale to tell,
In the week when Christmas comes.

St. Michael's Church at Christmas Time, Hernhill, Kent, England:

Let every night put forth a star
To show us where the heavens are,
In the week when Christmas comes.

Let every stable have a lamb
Sleeping warm beside its dam.
In the week when Christmas comes.
