‘Twas the night before Christmas
Sunday January 12, 2014 | By:George Richert |
‘Twas the night before Christmas, the snow it was new
The village was sleeping at just after two
When out on East Main Street arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter
The electric lines, they popped as they sparked
And looked red and green and blue as they arched
The houses went dark, a complete loss of power
It was 4 degrees out, and dropping by hour
A comforting voice at the Springville dispatch
Sent help from nearby. They came in a flash
I knew at that moment I’d nothing to dread
And let thoughts of Christmas come back in my head
The truck it was yellow and flashed as they worked
On this cold repair they would rather have shirked
At just after four, they brought back the light
And Christmas to all, and to all a good night
I can’t help but think that, when came the dawn
They woke to find presents but held back a yawn
The folks who stepped up when those wires came down
Are reason one hundred we so love this town !
