12 Days of Love (From Star of Wonder)

My con­tri­bu­tion, The Twelve Days of Love, draws its inspi­ra­tion from the car­ol The Twelve Days of Christ­mas. In the song, a lover sends twelve dif­fer­ent gifts to his sweet­heart. Luke St. Clair will present twelve gifts to Car­o­line, his count­ess, and wife of eight years.

I researched and found the book where the lyrics to The Twelve Days of Christ­mas were first pub­lished in 1780. It was mem­o­rized and then chant­ed by chil­dren at Christ­mas­time and not set to music until 1909. I also kept with the orig­i­nal lyrics, which includ­ed four col­ly birds—colly being a region­al Eng­lish expres­sion for coal-black. The ear­li­est ver­sions of the chant did not start with “On” and I hon­ored that, as well.

Luke came up with some clever gifts for the woman he loves but I hope read­ers will find the final gift to be the best. It will also answer read­er requests for what hap­pened to Boy in my St. Clair Christ­mas novel­la Starlight Night.
