A Christmas Poem

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : December 20, 2004

I don’t write much poetry, but I wrote the following as an act of worship to our Lord:

Ode to a Forgotten Babe

When Yuletide bliss

forgets

the somber tone of Deity enfleshed,

 

and when gaiety thick

stifles

contemplation of the odorous manger;

 

when all the world

tethers

the numinous to a pine bough,

 

We will remember you,

We will make room for you.

We will wonder at you.
