The cold heart of man
May be warmed at Christmas time
With the gift of love.

Poem for the Day

Posted: 5 December 2014

I heard Sir Winter coming,
He crept out of his bed
and rubbed his thin and freezing hands:...
'I'll soon be up!' he said.

'I'll shudder at the keyhole
and rattle at the door,
I'll strip the trees of all their leaves
and strew them on the floor.

'I'll harden every puddle
that Autumn thinks is his -
I'll lay a sparkling quilt of snow
on everything that is!

'I'll bring a load of darkness
as large as any coal,
and drive my husky dogs across
the world, from pole to pole.

'Oho! How you will shiver!'
- And then I heard him say;
'But in the middle of it all
I'll give you CHRISTMAS DAY!'

Sir Winter

Snow falls on your cheek,
Soft as a grandmother’s kiss,
Bringing Christmas home.

Poem for the Day

Bring in a tree, a young Norwegian spruce,
Bring hyacinths that rooted in the cold.
Bring winter jasmine as its buds unfold -...
Bring the Christmas life into this house.

Bring red and green and gold, bring things that shine,
Bring candlesticks and music, food and wine.
Bring in your memories of Christmas past.
Bring in your tears for all that you have lost.

Bring in the shepherd boy, the ox and ass,
Bring in the stillness of an icy night,
Bring in the birth, of hope and love and light.
Bring the Christmas life into this house.

The Christmas Life

Like the kings of old,
We follow the nameless star
Buying salvation.
