Marquette Mountain

'Twas the night before Ski Season, when all through the chalet
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Groomer soon would be there;
Sammy Snowflake was nestled all snug in his beds,
With visions of chair lifts and jumps in their heads;
And I Suzie Snowflake in my kerchif’,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out on the bunnyhill there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window we flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Groomer and its Mighty Tiller…
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Timmy!
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, DAVE! now, CHRIS! now, BOBBY now, John and JEREMY!
On, MITCH! on SLEEMAN! on, CARSTON and DANIEL!
On,SKIP, On Mike, On Josh, On Ben and On Darwin!
To the top of the Mountain! to the top of the wall!
Now know this crew has done it all!
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the Mountain Top the snowguns they made dance,
With the groomer full of corderoy, and Timmy too.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And covered the mountain; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the mountain he rose;
He sprang to his groomer, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
HAPPY SKI SEASON TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!
