RAVEN NIGHTWOOD, MIRROR ASTROLOGER
It’s the night before Christmas and all through the house, nothing is happening and you feel like a grouch. So call up your friends and see who’s around and you might together make some joyous sounds.
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care but despite all your shopping, you’ve nothing to wear. Look through your closet, mend all the tatters, and you’ll look like a million when it really matters.
The children are nestled all snug in their beds while vacation fantasies dance in your heads. You and your mate must bear it and grin, and plan for a trip when the New Year begins.
Mamma in her kerchief and you in your cap-well you don’t dress like that but it’s time for a nap. This time of year is good for a rest. So relax and have fun and do all that is best.
Out on the lawn there arises such a clatter. Oops! Did you remember the home chores that matter? Repair leaks in your roof, replace broken lights, and stay home with the knowledge that you will be all right.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow makes you sing “A-skiing we surely will go.” Plan carefully for your holiday trip and make sure you don’t do an unintended back flip.
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, so you run around fast as the wink of an eye. Slow down, it’s that time for settling back. Enjoy yourself now-you sure have the knack.
As you draw in your head and are turning around, you are quite overwhelmed with ideas so profound. Now’s a good time to compose, write, or sketch. Next year you can see what returns these will fetch.
A bundle of toys you have flung on your back. You’ve been playing Santa for all of your pack. You are so generous, so thoughtful and good. One hopes that you’re rewarded as well you should.
You speak not a word but go straight to your work. All year you’ve been working like Scrooge’s poor clerk. It’s time to be jolly, to take a deep breath, and realize you owe yourself one big happy debt.
Laying your finger aside of your nose, you look in the mirror and say “I want some new clothes.” To post-holiday sales you will blissfully go and buy all the pretty things arranged in a row.
You spring to your sleigh, to your team give a whistle. So it’s not quite a sleigh and you make your team bristle. You should give them the time off, light some bright lights, and say “Happy Holidays to all and to all a Good Night.”
