FROM AUTHOR KATHRYN CAROLE ELLISON
“I began writing these poems in the 1970s, when my children were reaching the age of reason and I as I found myself in the position of becoming a single parent. I needed something special to share with them— something that would become a tradition, something they could always count on…
“And so the Advent poems began—one day, decades ago—with a poem each day during the holiday season in December. Over the years the messages and topics have evolved and expanded, as did their horizons, but one thing never changed: each poem was a gift of love. The poems were accompanied by a little trinket or sweet for them to enjoy. Forty years (and hundreds of poems) later, my children still look forward to the poems that started a family tradition that new generations have joyfully embraced. (Or… maybe it’s the trinkets they love?)” —KCE
