Christmas eve carolers sing from down below—
As children sing along by the Capiz window.
Up above the balcony, lined up in a row—
Christmas is here! Children’s smiling faces aglow!
String bands paraded with pride—
They strut along with entertaining stride!
Colorful outfits sewn to perfection—
Their music echoed with varied inflections!
Christmas lanterns hanging by the windows
Meticulously adorned as they show;
Star-shaped with fringes and boat-like sails
Swaying slightly like flying kites' tails.
As evening turns closer to midnight...
People scurried home with flight—
Tucked their children to sleep.
Awaken Christmas morn as children peeped.
