Father Christmas

15 December

On Christmas Eve the sky is cold
and full of whirling snow,
but in the house it’s cosy
and the kitchen all aglow;

and Father Christmas makes it clear
he doesn’t want to go,
but still he packs his sandwiches
and takes the radio;

and out across the world he flies
reindeer and sleigh,
from London houses to igloos
and pyramids along the way,

and leaves a present everywhere
that children play,
and flies back home in time
to go to bed on Christmas day.

Father Christmas runs until 5 January at the Lyric
