Grandfather Knows

Grandfather says of all things
The silliest he’s heard
Is that some children call things
They’ve never seen, “absurd!”
And have their doubts of true things,
And won’t believe, because
They say, “If you but knew things,
There is no Santa Claus!”
Grandfather says he knows him,
And sees him every year,
And Santa often shows him
The playthings he brings here;
He says, too, Santa told him
If any girls and boys
Laugh at and won’t uphold him,
They’ll not get any toys!
