Twas two days after Christmas and the 9:50 PM clatter

Twas two days after Christmas and I had just settled down for a jaunt on the Internet
at 9:50 PM out on the street there arose such a clatter
I sprang from the sofa to see what was the matter
Away to the window I flew like a flash
I Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash
The moon on the breast of the over month old leaves
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a Toledo trash crew
With a driver and two helpers, not so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it must be overtime.

All you need is a line like this:

The truck skidded by on an ice-covered sheet,
Neither plows nor salt trucks had my street yet to meet.
