Alice and advent


Alice ticked off every day,
carefully and sure,
this adventure was unique;
life so madly drawn.

It was a journey unexpected,
arrival never known,
and yet she plunged abandoned;
such courage surely shown.

Speedily the time did draw,
moments into place,
something notable was born;
Advent seen as grace.

  3. Oh what a nice ballad.. I think it's well done given some of Lewis Carroll's poetry.. and bringing Alice into advent by the Calendar works so well..
