    • Phoebe: He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
                    And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle.
                    But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight:
                   "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
      Phoebe is reciting the end of "A Visit From St. Nicholas", more commonly known as "The Night Before Christmas". The poem, published anonymously in 1823, was later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore who acknowledged authorship in 1837.
