A Christmas Wish

I'd like a stocking made for a giant,
And a meeting house full of toys,
Then I'd go out in a happy hunt
For the poor little girls and boys;
Up the street and down the street,
And across and over the town,
I'd search and find them everyone,
Before the sun went down.

    A Christmas Wish - Poem by Eugene Field

    I'd like a stocking made for a giant,
    And a meeting house full of toys,
    Then I'd go out in a happy hunt
    For the poor little girls and boys;
    Up the street and down the street,
    And across and over the town,
    I'd search and find them everyone,
    Before the sun went down.

    Desiderio Natalizio - Poesia di Eugene Field

    Mi piacerebbe avere una calza fatta per giganti,
    E un circolo aperto a tutti, pieno di giocattoli,
    Allora mi avventurereri in una felice ricerca
    Di ragazze e ragazzi poveri;
    Su e giù per le strade,
    Setacciando tutta la città:
    Li cercherei e troverei tutti,
    Prima che il sole tramonti.
