‘Twas the night before Christmas

And throughout the house

Nary a creature did stir

Not even a spouse

His eyes filled with wonder

His jaw dropped in awe

Of the sight sat before him

One conclusion could draw

For underneath the Christmas tree

In glorious shining light

A gift of devotion

From his adoring wife

Wrapped in ribbon from head to toe

Bowed in submission

Her trust in him to show

The vision of his dreams

Tied with a red velvet bow.
