baby Jesus manger scene – December 10


crisp and clear, I shovel

a path to the baby Jesus

manger scene in our front



snow topping high upon the

plastic brows. wiseman,

wiseman, joseph, mary,

wiseman, baby Jesus waits

yet to come and make his way.


oh sparkler night, O decorations

simple, tell me that story now,

of why we wait and gaze


of why we stand and hope

for something in the darkness,

shining in the darkness lit by

the crystal way


waiting for those angels

shining in the darkness,

lit ever by the starlight

that fills and leads our stay.
