Measure on measure

The Christmas tree's up
and it's twinkling there
under the window
good spirit to share
It's welcoming glow
is a comforting sight
when I leave in the morning
and return home at night

And the advent sack beckons
a departure this year
from traditional boxes
but still oozing cheer
As every morning we delve
to find a new treasure
from our four grown-up children
for measure on measure

A calendar for Advent

Each day throughout December
home-made by children dear
a little box of mystery
waits to bring me cheer

A calendar for Advent
four and twenty little gifts
which with each morning’s cry of joy
serve well to spirits’ lift
