tremble in anticipation as Dad hooks them up.
They know their most important journey lies ahead.
Gentle hands guide them to the big woods in search of the christmas tree.
Sides heaving and nostrils flaring, they plunge through deep snow
to reach their ultimate destination.
At last, Dad cries out in excitement!
"That's the one! Mother will surely be pleased!"
With several sharp blows the majestic tree is felled,
we load it up onto the sleigh and Dad smiles with satisfaction.
Yes, this is the one, another perfect tree!!
