A Partridge Under a Fir Tree

On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me…
Six gray partridge under a fir tree

Birds flew from the rooftop
Down to the freshly fallen snow
Huddled under the cedars below
Out of the cold breeze

The whole covey soon got up
Made its way through the sun’s warm glow
To the fir tree and its shadow
Seeking a few meagre seeds

Their leader rose with a hop
The other five soon to follow
Took to the sky in quite a show
Explosion of wings, if you please
