one turtle dove
All through the days leading up to Christmas there are carol singers in Trafalgar Square. I stopped off on my way home and it was the turn of the National Deaf Children's Society. This choir was a little different because they were signing to pre-recorded carols, so it was very lively, especially one very enthusiastic child in the front row, full of zest. The twelve days of Christmas was particularly energetic, as you might imagine.
Here we have one turtle dove, courtesy of my work colleague, Tim, who can sign - and has taught me one or two things.
If you have never seen a signing choir, I'd recommend you look out for one. Poetry in motion.
