Silent Night

Salvation was born that long ago night,
In Bethlehem's lowly town.
Little did the townsfolk know,
Emmanuel had come down.
Night time sky began to glow,
Twas a star brighter than the rest.

Never before had so bright a star been seen,
Inciting omens to be guessed.
Good tidings were shared with the terrified shepherds.
Heavenly messengers sang with joy.
The shepherds did as the angels said,
   and worshipped Mary's baby boy.

    This is one of the best acrostics I have ever read! It retells the Christmas story in such a poetic way. I hope you do another contest soon; yours are the best! A wonderful new year to you and yours. Isaiah

    Enjoyed this a lot, Kim. I feel a connection to Mary, and though I'm protestant, I find comfort with Mary. Thanks for sharing this. Hugs Cyndi
