NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
This is an Acrostelostic. An acrostic with a word spelled by beginning and end letters of the lines.
I have taken the form a step further by hiding in the verse Christ child’s mother to refer to prompt text again.
Perhaps a hint with the notes that the title points to Virgin Mary within the words.
*Christopher Flynn is the man M points out as her encouragement to dance when young.
