Sleigh Ride Laura E. Richards









Sleigh Ride

Laura E. Richards

Ting! ring! the sleigh-bells jingle

Merrily over the frozen snow.

Cheeks a-glow and ears a-tingle,

Tumble in, children, here we go!


Ting! ring! the sleigh-bells jingle!

Get along, Dobbin! go along, Jack!

Bells and voices merrily mingle,

Swift we fly as an arrow's track.


Ting! ring! the sleigh-bells jingle!

Nose cold, Tommy? Here, rub it with snow!

Toes ache, Ned? Just kick till they tingle,

Thump! thump! thump! on the dasher, so!


Ting! ring! the sleigh-bells jingle!

Snow-wreaths fly like a snow-sea's foam.

Sweet bells, sweet laugh, hark! how they mingle!

Tumble out, children, here we're at home!
