About Clement Clarke Moore:
Clement Clarke Moore is thought to be the author of the Christmas poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas", which later became famous as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", but debate continues as to who really wrote it.
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky. So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, with the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
He had a broad face and a little round belly, that shook, when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
