I like that I have to bend down
on my knees
to see Christmas
in a ten inch tableau.

In my white garden
beside the frozen pond,
a soundless manger
is filled with straw,
and curious figures huddle
in from the snow.

Eyes stay fixed
upon a radiant babe,
passing a secret to his mother.

A wishing star
spins across the sky,
leading kings
to slip past their kingdoms,

because a rumor told them
to come sing
a song
whose words
come from within.

Wishing the best to all my friends...Merry Christmas...Happy Holidays...May your days be blessed!

Fantastic description of the manger poetry style. I like the part about the wishing star spins across the sky, it just says it all.

I like that last stanza very much, Lyn. Even though the words may be different, we all sing a song from within. On TV over the past four evenings (30 minutes each) we have watched a new rendering of the Nativity, done in the simplest, most realistic and most touching way. It was a joy to watch. Merry Christmas.
