Christmas came…

7 Dec

A seasonal poem for you, which I first posted as a comment on the Guardian’s website – http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/dec/07/poster-poems-december?mobile-redirect=false

Christmas came….

Christmas came,
Amongst the darkness the twinkle of lights,
Amidst the darkest of nights,
A new star burns bright.
Christmas came,
Music amongst silence,
Echoes of little donkeys,
kings of orient are,
bearing gifts traversing afar
Beyond the material facade, the tinsel veneer,
fellowship the greatest gift to appear,
New life at the death of the year.
