Post HousePets! - Openermas carols
I sent this to Rick, who suggested starting a thread for all to put their Openermas Carols and poems. An idea I encourage.

Here's my opener(heh):-

ON OPENERMAS EVE

On Openermas Eve
the critter does hop,
bringing hope to the world.
and gifts to the poor,
he's like our own special shop.

If you need a door,
believe and he'll bring it
If you need something more,
stand and just sing it.


He sees when we're faithful
he hears our loud prayers
like any great saviour would
and he loves you, for sure,
And his gifts show he cares.

If you want a cart,
Believe and he'll drive it.
If your desired needs a heart,
pray and he may bring it.


He plays dead at our passing;
for fun we admire.
He acts scared when in our wood
and praises our courage
which raises our love higher.

Our reverence for him is deep
and, with Tiger, he needs it.
Our trust he gives in his sleep
and, to honor him, we use it.


We endure the winter
for he is in spirit with us
We know he'd be here if he could
but others there need him
so don't make a fuss.

To be with us he endures it,
their lies and jibes and taunts.
Some say he doesn't deserve it,
but our reverence he never flaunts.


So visit him on Openermas Day
and stand in awe to hear him speak
as the voice awaited since childhood,
in Babylon Gardens says the holy words,
'Leave me alone, you woodland freak!'

Any that works. I'm pretty sure they'd go Acapella. Anyhow, as we're in at the birthing of a religious holiday, why would we assume they'd use a known tune?

((I'm an optimistic poet more than a songster.))

It should also be reiterated that this thread is for all comers who wish to give poems and carols for Openermas.

(Verse 1)
Hallo the opener of ways,
(Chorus) Hello!
The opener of ways,
can you see him open the door,
(Chorus) Open the door!
of the great temple!
(Chorus) Temple!
(Reapeat x1)

(Verse 2)
Please! Help! Opener of ways!
(Zach's voice) I am zach, but I'll help!
Help me open this door,
so I can see my family,
for openermas!
(Zach's Voice) Uh... Sure?

(Verse 3)
(Racoon Guy) This is nonsense!
The openmas carols,
the lack of sense,
This is nonsense!
This is maddness!
(Chorus) This is nonsense!
(Chorus) This is maddness!

(Verse 4)
Why this is a time,
to open things,
for your family,
and friends,
and also a time to open your,
Heart!
(Chorus) Heart!
(Reapeat in order: Verse 4, then Verse 3, 3 times)

I have no freaking idea.

I thought you did fine, Spyder. The idea's just to be inventive and have fun.

A Modified version of Silent Night, with Raccoon beliefs added to it. X3

Opener's night, warmful light
Hunger is calm, fears gone by
Curl with purest of Family and Child
Warmth in fur so tender and mild
Sleep in Opener's peace
Sleep in Opener's peace

Opener's night, warmful night
Collared ones quake at the sight
Glories stream from farms afar
Farm hosts sing Ureka!
Zachery, the Opener is here
Zachery, the Opener is here

Opener's night, warmful light
Graceful laws within paw's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy heavenly whisks
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Zachery, The Opener, has come
Zachery, The Opener, has come

I borrowed the tune (and some occasional words) from 'We three Kings of Orient are' for this.

Out one night, I saw from afar
As the opener got from a car
From the store, with food for sure
and his door left ajar.

Ooooohhhh.
Zach of wonder, Zach of light
clad in wondrous, holy, white
You're our center, let us enter
and bathe in your warmth tonight


Born out loose on some old plain
their poor loss is our holy gain
Prophet forever, mocked never
over us all, you reign

Ooooohhhh.
Zach of wonder, Zach of light
clad in wondrous, holy, white
You're our center, let us enter
and bathe in your warmth tonight


Nuts and berries to offer have I
To the one exalted so high
Not a bribing and no imbibing
of orange soda on the sly

Ooooohhhh.
Zach of wonder, Zach of light
clad in wondrous, holy, white
You're our center, let us enter
and bathe in your warmth tonight


Mushrooms are mine, for you to consume
I'll leave them here, just outside your room
See I'm leaving, not retrieving
as the hume pursues with a broom.

Ooooohhhh.
Zach of wonder, Zach of light
clad in wondrous, holy, white
You're our center, let us enter
and bathe in your warmth tonight


Glorious morn, behold him arise
and see the gifts laid out for his eyes
he throws them here, we disappear
like the Raccoons with Tiger's pies.

Ooooohhhh.
Zach of wonder, Zach of light
clad in wondrous, holy, white
You're our center, let us enter
and bathe in your warmth tonight

I just had to do one so here's my contribution:
to the tune of "O Come, All Ye Faithful"

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫

Oh come, all ye ferals
Joyful and exuberant
Oh come ye, Oh come see the Opener of Ways
Come and sing praises
To our great deliverer:
All hail to the Opener
All hail to the Opener
All hail to the Opener,
Opener of Ways!


Sing, choirs of animals!
Sing your great devotion!
Sing, though your praises He may seem to ignore
Zach the majestic
We all now do celebrate
All hail to the Opener
All hail to the Opener
All hail to the Opener,
Opener of Ways!


♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫

Y'know, I'd love a strip where Zach opens his door to a group singing carols to him.

It's not that unlikely, we've already seen them shouting praises at his window!

In the bleak midwinter,
Jessica did moan.
Her breath shone out like sparkles;
the cold cut to the bone

Our Opener will help us, all this is just known,
our prayers to him will save us, if his will is shown.
In the bleak midwinter, a Rabbit hutch sufficed
the Opener almighty, and it never iced.

In his name we endure, all the pain and love
for the cherubs like Tum and those above
But no lovedMum could ever miss
that last, enchanted, kiss.

What can I bring him, to show my love?
If I were a Feline, I would bring a Dove.
If I were a Canine, I would bring a bone,
yet what I am is standing here, all alone.

For we do all love love him, our opener of ways,
even little Jessica, no matter what she says.
And I, myself, do my part
in the circle bright
In the house security light
I sho-o-ow my heart.
