A Christmas Soliloquy

This poem by Tom Masson appeared in the Vallejo Evening Chronicle on December 24, 1891.

To A Spray of Mistletoe

One year ago above the door
You hung, and she was there
I kissed her then, because of you
And then upon the stair

We sat and talked. Because of you
My arm stole round her waist.
And then, because of you once more,
I kissed her. This in haste:

For her poppa was up above,
And down the stair he came.
This was last year, and yet I'm still,
Because of you, quite lame
