Awake, I have worried, fussed, fumed and planned.
Asleep I have sought over sea and land.
Wherever I went, when I told them the price,
Clerks would smile - show sympathy - and try to be nice.
I have been to the Wasatch, the Progress and Squires.
I have looked at all things a human admires.
At Gunderson's ~ at Biddles ~ and over at Pete's too.
I asked to see their goods, both old and new.
I went to Penney's, and then to the Sanpete.
I am quite sure I visited all places on
I roamed North and South, up and down.
I almost decided to go to some other town.
At last discouraged and in despair, I searched
mail order catalogues from everywhere.
But whenever I saw an article I thought would be nice,
Uncle Sam’s postage would just add to the price.
I have seen radios, automobiles, blankets and mitts,
but darned if I could find anything for only two bits.
Today I decided on this present so plain and queer.
Here is wishing you a
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR
