Coarse, chilly winds lift up unsettled snow,
Implanting flakes like seeds into the pores--
The ground gnaws. The snowflakes glow,
Like fallen stars, upon the wisemens’ course.

Impacience lead our travelers ahead
To seek the truth of a Holy Proclamation.
An in ovation, each bowes down his head;
A child is born, ‘tis time for celebration!

December twenty-fifth-- a sacred date!
It is a date for our descendants to remember!
A tender heart is born with a poet’s fate,
No other date such destiny could render!

A stroke of light upon the snowy canvas,
As though the twilight wrote an epilogue--
The cloak of darkness leaves four fading stanzas,
Picked up by Time, which wanders broke.

This flows so nicely, Master! I'm just a little confused about the date...Dec.21st...did you mean the 25th or is the 21st significant in some way that I'm not aware of? Of course the actual date means nothing to me.....anyday can be Christmas in the heart!

You're welcome, Master. I'm just glad it wasn't something that I wasn't aware of! There are so many things that are over my head I was certainly hoping there wasn't something else that was!
