Miss Aurora Borealis
came careening from the palace
while her best friend, Pretty Alice
followed gingerly behind
She was late to catch the night-ship
(which would sail out at a fast clip)
for the Polar Light Express Trip
Where she'd have a chance to shine.
Dressed in jackets made of fish fur
(Pretty Alice knitted for her),
and with a flask of cherry liqueur
she'd found hidden 'neath the sink,
She ran rushing toward the oarsmen,
And told them to stall the captain
She and her handmaid would hasten
(though they stopped to have a drink).
