There’s a garden across from my house that’s sublime As it looks like it’s Christmas there all of the time. There’s a seat on the lawn that resembles a sleigh; It’s just waiting for reindeer to pull it away. Now, lean over close and I’ll whisper to you A secret that’s known, but to only a few. A tale so amazing you may not believe That magic takes place there on each Christmas Eve.
Enjoy this magical garden adventure.
