Well, so that is that. Now we must dismantle the tree, Putting the decorations back into their cardboard boxes– Some have got broken–and carrying them up to the attic. The holly and mistletoe must be taken down and burnt, And the children got ready for school. There are enough Left-overs to do, warmed-up, for the rest of the week– Not that we have much appetite, having drunk such a lot, Stayed up so late, attempted–quite unsuccessfully– To love all of our relatives, and in general Grossly overestimated our powers.
