picture of several Christmas books by Richard Paul Evans whose covers look gift wrapped in deep gem tones. They are lined up on top of a library book shelf.

Deck the Shelves

Deck the shelves with plenty of Christmas books, 
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 Tis the season to read Sheryl Woods, 
 Fa la la la la la la la la.

Don the cases with Brunstetter,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 Troll your way past Debbie Macomber,
 Fa la la la la la la la la. 

See Grisham, Wiggs, and R.P. Evans,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 Strike upon the classic by Dickens,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.

Read them all in merry measure,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 While they tell of Yule tide treasure,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.

Read we joyous, all together,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.
 Heedless of the wind and weather,
 Fa la la la la la la la la.

Yes, around the fourth stanza I got lazy.
