Another week passed?
I confess, I opened all the little doors
In the advent calendar at once
And then forgot about it
And just today remembered
That Advent continues, a week at a time
A candle lighting every Sunday
And four for St. Lucia,
Whom I also forgot was several days ago.
These minor celebrations
Bring out the cynic that my father
Taught me to be
That this was just a way
To get you into church
To fill the collection plate
