Silent Night

Moon sleeps long wrapped in cozy quilt of chilly fogs, Earth is engulfed in thick black carbon-canopy; Trees ghosts-like; birds black-hole shaded; loud growl of dogs, The scene is as silent as a dream fantasy... Grow-caws cooled; cock-craws chocked; cattle clemently calm; Buds of roses and sunflowers snore and sleep still; Snails and worms shrunk betwixt fallen leaves and twigs, warm, Cold seems handicapping even hearts of goodwill... Bells feebly heard; the village church is very far; As our bullocks are unwell, we may need to walk; There's joy, when young and old - all together way-fare, Merrily walk telling tales and season's talk... Come, join us, share the happiness, Jesus is born! Partake in Christmas joy, though we might walk till morn! 21 December 2021

Such a lovely poem Kristuraj, quite unique, tracing one's thoughts to centuries back when people used to travel in bullock carts. The walk to the church in groups is still an exciting memory in my mind ! Thanks for this beautiful poem.
