The Forest Raised a Christmas Tree by Arthur Durando and Irina Popova


Christmas tree 17

1.The forest raised a Christmas tree,
‘Twas silent and serene
In winter and in summer
It was slender and so green.

2.The wind sang it a lullaby:
Sleep Christmas tree, sleep tight!
The snow was making clothes for it:
It was a pretty sight!

3.A tremblinbunny put himself

Beneath its arms so wide;
The hungry wolf just passed him by –
A lovely place to hide!

4.Some sleigh bells rang throughout the woods,
The snow was crisp and clean,
A horsey brought a forester

5.And now it comes to visit us,
With lights and garlands bright,
While all the children dance and sing
To greet it with delight!
