The First Christmas

The First Christmas by Michael R. Burch ’Twas in a land so long ago ... the lambs lay blanketed in snow and little children everywhere sat and watched warm embers glow and dreamed (of what, we do not know). And THEN—a star appeared on high, The brightest man had ever seen! It made the children whisper low in puzzled awe: What did it mean? It made the wooly lambkins cry. Not far away a new-born lay, warm-blanketed in straw and hay, a lowly manger for his crib. The cattle mooed, distraught and low, to see the child. They did not know it now was Christmas day! This is a poem in which I tried to capture the mystery and magic of the first Christmas day.
