Twas the Night Before Christmas

December 24, 2013

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through Cragside house
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The rooms had been cleaned by the team with care,
for a new season approaches and soon would be there.

All the furniture covered, from head to foot,
no metalwork tarnished with ashes or soot.
A bundle of dusters were flung in the washer,
this house is now clean, it looks so much posher!

Paul was so pleased a long drink he could take,
as his team had gone home for a long winter’s break.
Katherine left Cragside with a smile and a laugh,
soon off to Australia, she really must pack!

Felicity’s Christmas began later than that,
not much leave was accrued for this new member of staff.
Alex was late buying presents this year,
the start of her holidays meant shopping in fear!

For Philip a long journey home for the season,
Christmas dinner was calling, what a good reason!
Carole wears Christmas socks every day of the year,
she can’t wait for Christmas to get a new pair.

The team do look forward to a Christmas so merry,
home to their families and a glass of sherry.
And they all exclaim, as they drive out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”
