Babushka The whole village busy looking at the new star *Babushka busy cleaning her house entire So busy to tidy her house failed to hear The sounds of the drums and pipes She missed even the star to see. Suddenly heard loud knocking on her door Three kings and a servant at her door Needed a place to rest until the night falls As her house was the tidiest. Serving baked bread, pies and cakes She asked very many questions to the kings King Caspar said they have come a long way King Balthazar said they follow the new star That would lead them to a new born King, The king of kings, The King of Earth and Heaven And asked to accompany them to see the star. Babushka asked so many questions to herself “How about the dress? What a work pending? No, excuse me, I have no time.” Again the star appeared in the sky The kings departed sadly. Working the whole night she got tired And slept for the whole day. Finally, she took all the toys She washed for the New Baby Ran down to the path the kings had taken Asking about from village to village, town to town Finally knew the kings had gone to Bethlehem Where she was informed by the landlord of an inn The kings were there for two days But he couldn’t provide them the room, stayed in stable She visited the stable but of no avail, There, a man informed her that kings went their places After finding the world’s Savior who she missed. Babushka is still looking for Him.
• Based on the legend of a Russian woman living in a small village* Second place win in Contest: Christmas Epic Poem by Leonara

    Poor Babushka. Enjoyed your poem. The title of this poem reminds me of a toy I enjoyed as a child. One Babushka inside another, inside another, etc, etc,
