Old Christmas Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Now he who knows old ChristmasA
He knows a carle of worthB
For he is as good a fellowC
As any upon earthB
He comes warm cloaked and coatedD
And buttoned up to the chinE
And soon as he comes a nigh the doorF
We open and let him inE
And with sprigs of holly and ivyG
We make the house look gayH
Just out of an old regard for himI
For it was his ancient wayH
He must be a rich old fellowC
What money he gives awayH
There is not a lord in EnglandJ
Could equal him any dayH
Good luck unto old ChristmasA
And long life let us singK
For he doth more good unto the poorL
Than many a crowned kingK
