Twelve days, after Christmas

On the nth day of Christmas,
as good people we may see:

Twelve different paths to joy,
Eleven means of giving,
Ten fresh counts of hope,
Nine weeks apart have ended,
Eight times more love than fear,
Seven different roles to play,
Six degrees of separation –
and six tries scored in the rain –
Five wishes made,
Four major ways of faith,
Three goals away from home,
Two companions hoping,
And our families gathered by a pine tree.
