’Tis two weeks before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a present is bought — not a toy, not a blouse.
Behold these ideas to make shopping a cinch;
None are too pricey, none fit for a Grinch.
For the girl who ranks baubles on top of her list,
There are Carolets bracelets to adorn her wrist.
With all these great presents, they’ll rake in a haul.
So dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!
