The Legend of Rudolf.

The story of a struggle against tremendous odds; a journey of personal courage; and how legends are born and grow in the minds of all of us.


for Charlotte,
who asked the question


Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say,
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
"Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history!

-- Children's Song, 20th Century
