SHIVAREE: MINNESOTA CHRISTMAS
9/29/2019

By Rodney A. Warndahl

He lights a candle in the window
To guide his lady’s way home;
Had her stocking hung
Since Thanksgiving was done,
There for when she walks thru the door…

He wrapped her present after it first snowed,
Wrote “For you with love” on the tiny tag;
Made her special card from an old grocery bag,
Keeps it sealed below his pillow
Till they’re alone…

CHORUS
Wishing to gaze together as stars align,
Blazoning with news now comes Yuletide!

Wishing to course together by horse-drawn kit,
Down wintry trails morning brisk!

Wishing to trim together the storied pine,
Caroling hymns aloud like a childhood time!

Wishing to share this magnificent tradition,
Minnesota Christmas!

He patiently awaits her call by phone
Saying she’ll soon travel home;
Meanwhile, pretends things are just fine,
She may yet return tonight,
Absence growing his heart fonder more…

REPEAT CHORUS

Whatever reasons cause her to go,
He’ll still be her man, still welcome her back;
Understands she’s all he has,
Locked in his soul,
No matter how far she roams…

REPEAT CHORUS
