An Advent Calendar Of Love

You Know Who This Is For

We have an Advent Calendar and we open a door each day together. I decided to take this concept into a poem. Advent Calendars have a varying number of days but I have decided to do twenty-five.

For this, I have created a structure of an opening couplet, five cinquains to open the doors and a closing couplet.

Also for the door numbers I want to use the words for Polly Jean Harvey's "Orlam" as far as I can and the rest as Gaelic numbers, the review of how it continues to inspire is after the poem. Note "Fiche" is pronounced as two syllables (fih-ha) . I may get some of the Gaelic syllables wrong but it should work overall.

I hope you like this.

The music I have chosen is The Housemartin's beautiful "Caravan Of Love" because Caravan sounds a bit like a calendar.
