Advent – A Poem

I’ve been thinking all week about writing an acrostic poem about Advent. What I ended up with also uses alliteration so that there are four words for each letter in Advent, to represent the four Sundays of Advent.

My son saw me typing this poem and asked, “What’s with the shape?” I said that it’s supposed to look kind of like a crown, for the King of kings, though you have to look at it sideways to see it. I’m not sure it works, but decided to leave it this way anyway.
