When from outside our office there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the entry I flew like a flash,
Tore open the door – t’was well worth the dash.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Chuck Gould from Nor’westing, spreading Holiday Cheer!
As he visits brokers and dealers who advertise and persevere,
Offering yachts and trawlers and sailboats for happy new owners to steer!
