A New Christmas Poem for You

carving
48″x24″ wood carving of Mary and Angel Gabriel
discovered on the back of a wooden table
a suprise from my groom
___________________________________________________________
Open your baby brown eyes
peek through the hole in the sky
launched to the Earth in the flesh
gold, myrrh, and burnt frankincense

the House of Bread, 0h, Bethlehem
no need to visit the holy lands
your baby footprints are here in my hands
in the silent night
and sure word, but a sword                                       Matt 10:34
the Christ was born
the Christ was born

don’t drift away, I’ll pray to three
don’t drift away, stay here on my knee

I saw your star as it rose
you broke in my scattered snow globe
washing of water over the oceans
my ice covered evergreen trees
snowglobe

the House of Bread, 0h, Bethlehem
no need to visit the holy lands
your grown up footprints are here in my sand
in the silent night
and sure word, but a sword
the Christ was born
the Christ was born

don’t drift away, I’ll count to three
don’t drift away, stay here on my knee

~ Mary
