The Chessmen's Christmas Cards

The chessmen think so very hard
before they write each Christmas card:

May your Christmas be healthy, merry and bright,
writes a knight.

Joy and peace may this season bring,
pens one king.

Let good cheer be seen wherever you look,
writes one queen, with the aid of a helpful rook.

Wishing you a yuletide full of delights,
a bishop writes.

A new King is born!
writes a pawn, feeling meek.

And checkmate to his brother!
adds another – what cheek!
