The Light Is Coming!
The Christmas season is upon us.  Some Christmas/winter poems for your enjoyment will be posted here in the next few weeks, and perhaps (if time and mental resources permit ;o) they will be interspersed with 'real' blogging.  

 
A Christmas Carol

G.K. Chesterton (1900)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s lap,
His hair was like a light.
(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all aright.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s breast
His hair was like a star.
(O stern and cunning are the kings,
But here the true hearts are.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s heart,
His hair was like a fire.
(O weary, weary is the world,
But here the world’s desire.)

The Christ-child stood on Mary’s knee,
His hair was like a crown,
And all the flowers looked up at Him,
And all the stars looked down.
