It was the Month before Christmas

In Rushmere Park,

Two Vols were sat shivering

From Morning til dark,

They rubbed hands and stamped feet

As they tried not to freeze

Or catch cold, as they waited to sell

Christmas Trees.


The reason for selling

These arboreal delights,

Is to bring seasonal happiness

And to support Christmas lights,

And the reason for suffering

The cold, is just,

To raise more funds for

The Greensand Trust.
