Thereafter the poems cover feasts and saints' days from St. Barnaby's Day (June 11) to St. Catherine's Day (November 25); there are several feasts represented by two poems. The verses are in a variety of stanza forms. Stanzas are numbered, and each poem is headed by a title within rules and closes with "Amen."
