Refreshments for Santa Claus

"It may be late and stormy and cold
  When Santa Claus reaches our street;
And Santa, you know, is very old,
  So I'll leave him something to eat."

"And what do you think he would like, dear heart,"
  "Something nice and sweet," she said;
"Jelly and jam, and a cranberry tart,
  And a teenty piece of bread!"

So there on the sideboard is Santa's feast,
  Which her own small hands have spread;
Jelly and jam,--three kinds at least,
  And a tart--but where is the bread?"
