The Christmas Gift. .
OLD Christmas had come, with his bright, merry face, And bracing airs joyous and
And while the gay holiday folks at each place, Selecting their gifts, might be
An old man walked on, at a very brisk pace,
In search of a SEWING-MACHINE.
Perplexed he appeared nay, bewildered
in mind—Amid all the vast moving scene,
Unable to meet with precisely the kind
Of thing he was seeking, I ween;
(Indeed, it is not quite so easy to find
For hours he paced up and down all Broadway, With puzzled and sorrowful mien;
For all his researches, throughout the long day, Entirely fruitless had been,
Till Fortune benignantly threw him in way
Of FINKLE AND LYON'S MACHINE.
"Ah, here !"—he exclaimed as a happy smile graced His features so bland and
Ah ! here I have managed to find out, at last,
"The very MACHINE that I mean;
"Yes, yes—I'd forgotten the name in my haste" 'Twas FINKLE AND LYON'S MACHINE!
"Was ever invention like this 'neath the sun!
"What movements!—how rapid and clean!" Continued repeating the joyous old man,
As he on his elbows did lean,
Beholding what wonderful things can be
By FINKLE AND LYON'S MACHINE.
His choice of a gift was no longer delayed;
(And here his great wisdom was seen)-
That Christmas, his daughter—a blooming young maid—
Was rendered as proud as a queen;
Next morn, when she rose, in her boudoir there laid A FINKLE AND LYON'S MACHINE!
