Advent By David Thompson
When cold December winds do blow,
And calendars on sale to go,
For many households to display
an opening for every day,
A snowman, or a Christmas tree,
Parcels and presents for to see,
A profitable time of year,
For many a “chocolatiere”.
To comprehend another way,
Whilst counting down to Christmas day,
For churches up and down the land,
This time of year is now at hand,
When Vicar and the PCC
do decorate the Christmas tree,
To mark this season of the year,
That Advent once again is here.
A vested church in purple hue,
The altar and the pulpit too,
With Advent candles there to light
To curb the darkness of the night,
Of star and stable so to tell,
The coming of Emmanuel,
With every Sunday counting down,
To the jewel in the crown.
Christmas is on its merry way as this seasonal offering by David Thompson demonstrates.
