On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me a partridge in a pear tree.

Dearest Jonathan,                                                                       12-26

I was overjoyed with your companionship at my Christmas table yesterday, and with your most thoughtful gift. The pear tree is lovely where I had it planted by my front step—but seeing the partridge alone in its branches has quickened my desire to see you again.                                               

Yours, Alicia.
