Wee bairns kecklin late at nicht,
cries o, "Git tae sleep!"
Wee bairns wishin, een shut ticht,
bit naebidys coontin sheep.
Squeezed-oot whispers wauken dawn
wi oo's an ah's an aw's!
Thochts o sleep hiv lang syne gone;
"Look at them! An those!"
Tuggin grand bows, rustlin paper,
Skirls o sheer delicht.
Openin boaxes, weans a-caper,
Oh, for Silent Nicht!
Clanks an whirrs wi bangs an bumps;
Faint chimin frae a bell;
Crunches, thuds an clangs an thumps;
an noise that soonds like . . . Well!
Music is near, playin guid cheer,
Echoin Christ his been born;
Soonds that we hear, soonds we haud dear,
Soonds oan a Christmas morn.
