As he stepped from the buckboard he was really a sight,
With his beard and mustache so curly and white.
As he burst in the cabin, the children awoke,
Both so astonished that neither one spoke.
And he filled up their boots with such presents galore
That neither could think of a single thing more.
When Buddy recovered the use of his jaws,
He asked, in a whisper, "Are you Santa Claus?"
