Holly & Mistletoe

The holly and the mistletoe

Are both well known by sight

So similar in the way they grow

But one is red and one is white

 

The holly perhaps is better known

For green leaves and red berries

In thanks largely to Irish who roam

Bringing with them fantasies of fairies

 

Mistletoe is a great little piece

Hung in doorways and in halls

Just remember that it’s white, please

The one used for kisses at the balls

 

Sitting against a backdrop of green lace

These berries are up for a night of fun

Adding to the hall a little bit of grace

Only coming down when it’s all done
