Another Poem for the Season—Gary Johnson’s December

Posted by Kendall Harmon

A little girl is singing for the faithful to come ye
Joyful and triumphant, a song she loves,
And also the partridge in a pear tree
And the golden rings and the turtle doves.....

Read it all (Hat tip MDS).

Really lovely.  Thank you for posting the link to Garrison Keillor’s reading of it!  A blessed 8th day of Christmas, Feast of Holy Name, and Gregorian New Year to all (though, of course, Advent 1 is New Year’s Day for those of the Faith).  smile
