Christmas Is Coming

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please put a penny in the old man's hat
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!

Tradition English nursery rhyme

Very inviting entry gate to your place. I see a little striped cloth kitty in the corner who also lives at my house.

Sharon said...

Gee, I had forgotten that rhyme!

Love the gates! That's one cute tea service!

Lovely little rhyme, isn't it and so good to sing.
The cardinals on your teaset are just made for Christmas, aren't they.

Very pretty decorations you have there.

Blessings, Star
