~~~

T'was gentle calm around us then
a feeling in the air
A soothing breeze disturbed the cold
its breath replaced despair

The stars had faded much too soon
mid - night, we wondered why
Then ... a brighter glow than a million stars
lit up the eastern sky

Our path seen clear ... in all our years
we never felt this way
We left our flocks beneath its light
to tend our hearts that day
~
Three men we saw in finest garb
with gifts to bless a king
Bestowed upon a man and wife
in a stable for lesser things

We could not hear just what they said
we thought our place forlorn
They called to us and said

"Come forth"

"This night a child is born"

I love this time of the year
when old friends reappear ...
to grace the pages with total joy
Merry Christmas to you

Rex, peace be with you, Sir.

Because of illness, I missed this,
but thank Goodness, the holiday forum
did not disappear rapidly, but remains
for us to allow a New Year into our hearts.

Your new interpretation of an age-old story
fills my heart and renews it into today's story.

Thank you, m'friend.
