Most Beautiful Christmas Poem

Quilt mine, like thorny bush, went on hurting me hard, It said: within this night you should become a bard! Shall I write: of child unknown, like blooms from buds, born? Should I write he is, like the eternal seed, bourne...? Shall I crown His majesty, in my rustic terms? Each of my heart-beat ever his glory affirms...! I tried to sleep on hard prickly straw just to know, How this child felt; I could not, yet, quite undergo...! Cows I have many at home; goats and black sheep too, I couldn’t, yet, smell my sheep; Where? When? Who is who...! One who comes is blessed I know, a guileless child, Aren't embers restless within, though outwardly mild...??? 23 November 2022 MOST BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS POEM Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Mystic Rose Rose

Chris, your poem stepped into the experience of the Christ Child in the manger, the cold, the prickly, the smell of the stable with the plan for our redemption burning like a new star. Wonderfully done, Chris. Best wishes for the contest. Sending you all the blessings of this holy season!
