Down in Belle Grove-ville
Liked Christmas Dinner a lot…
Tidbits, nibbles and dollops
Were greatly sought!
When those, young and old, sat down to the feast.
And they feasted! And they feasted!
And they Feasted, feasted and Feasted.
They started with ham, a spiraled brown sugar glazed beast
And followed with Horseradish Mash Potatoes to say the least!
They passed the Harvest Vegetables and Sweet Potatoes Mashed
And the Butternut Squash with Cranraisin and Spinach was even passed.
There was Chutney made of Orange and Cranberry
A sweet and tart delight that is red as a cherry.
And crescent rolls that were lost to those that tarry.
Lastly upon the plate sat deviled eggs by the dozen
Enjoyed by all down to the last one.
The last was saved for the chef as reward for a job well done.
And what happened then…?
Well…in Belle Grove-ville they say
That each small stomach
Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute their pants didn’t feel quite so tight,
They whizzed around the Mansion Tour until the last light.
And as the last left Belle Grove-ville
And drove out of sight,
The Darnell Family called after
“Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!”
