... and here is our house.
Not a creature is stirring--except for a mouse
Sam noticed the tracks through the new-fallen snow
And quickly decided that old wall had to go
I busied myself and stayed out of sight.
Lest I say the wrong thing and start a big fight.
There was hammering and pounding mixed in with some sawing
He really didn't need my hemming and hawing
"I'm going to need you to help in a little while"
We took out the old window and I told him to smile
Visions of sugar plums (cranberries?)
Kept me occupied
Visions of mouse holes
Kept Sam working outside
For me, I'm still cleaning and decking the hall
While Sam keeps on plugging away at his wall.
