Advent Calendar #14

The purple hangings make me think
Of strong red wine, the finest red.
The wine God gave the world to drink
The day his only Son was wed.

    1. Thanks! I think it's a bit Housman-esque, if Housman had experienced a conversion. (There's a thought.)

    2. That is funny... I have also wondered in the past what a Catholic Housman would have been like.

      I agree completely with Molly - 'plain beautiful' and 'beautiful plainness' - plain in the sense of a plain meaning. This series makes me half-wish that Advent could be longer.

    3. That's very kind of you, Dominic. I'm so glad you like it!
