A Christmas Carol by Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

The darling of the world is come
And fit it is, we find a roome
To welcome Him. The nobler part
Of all the house is here, is the heart,
Which we will give Him; and bequeath this hollie,
And this ivie wreath
To do him honor: who's our King
And Lord of all this reveling.
