12 Days of Christmas: A Partridge in a Pear Tree


At first, I thought,

I’d rather you didn’t send the bird with the gift

Then again, I thought,

How would I understand the delicacy of your feelings for me if the bird didn’t come with the pear tree?


I wanted the fruit

It looked so juicy

Yet I didn’t want to lose the bird

So I tip toed quietly to pluck it

Only to lose the bird to the winds eventually


Perhaps next year,

If you decide to send me another partridge in a pear tree

I will keep watch of what’s more important

The significance of your love for me.
