Christina: Peep into the Parlor
"Peeping into the Parlor" by Jessie Wilcox-Smith


Peep into the parlor,
little boy;
watch your mama
place ornaments on the tree ~
oh, the anticipation of
all the presents,
but please remember me.

Say a prayer, my little boy -
that I will be home soon.
I see your dear, sweet little face
when I gaze up at the moon.

Sleep tight tonight, my little son
and though I'm far away ~
I think of you this Christmas Eve
I'll be home again one day.
