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...???
