FC: Twas The Night Before Christmas! By: Audrey Williams:)

1: Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the ocean, not a creature was stirring, not even a motion.

2: The stockings were hung by the coral with care. | In hopes that | Fishy St. Nicholas will soon be there.

3: The fish were nestled all snug in their beds, | While visions of sea-slugs danced in their heads. | And momma in her seaweed wrap and I in my cap, | Had just settled our brains for a long winters nap.

4: When out on the sea floor there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

5: Away to the window I swam with a flash, tore open the grass and drew up the lash.

6: The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.

7: When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight underwater reindeer!

8: With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be Fishy St. Nick.

9: More rapid than sharks his courses they came. | And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.

10: "Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen, | On Comet, On Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen!"

11: To the top of the porch, to to the top of the wall, | Now dash away dash away dash away all.

12: As wet leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, | When they meet with an obstacle mount the sky,

13: So up on the house-top the coursers they flew,

14: With a sleigh full of pearls and Fishy St. Nicholas too.

15: And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, | The splashing and swashing of each little hoof.

16: As I drew in my head, and was turning around down the coral Fishy St. Nicholas came with a bound.

17: He was dressed all in scales, from his head to his foot, And his clothes all tarnished with moss and soot.

18: A bundle of pearls he had flung on his back, | And he looked | like a peddler, Just opening his pack.

19: His eyes-how they twinkled! His dimples how merry! | His cheeks were like roses, | His nose like a cherry!

20: His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as snow.

21: The stump of his pipe he held tight in his teeth, | And the bubbles it encircled his head like a wreath. | He had a broad face and i little round belly, | That shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

22: 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 twist of his head, soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

23: He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the stockings with a jerk.

24: And laying his finger aside his nose, and giving a nod, up the coral he rose.

25: He sprang to his sleigh, | to his team he whistled, | and they flew like the down of a thistle.

26: But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all and to all a goodnight"
