Four Gifts in One – A Poem

One ordinary night, long ago, in a noisy manger,

The earth’s axis rocked gently, a newborn’s cradle.

His identity, foretold in stories and The Torah,

The eternal curtain had unveiled, Abba Father.

The priestly tabernacle lay swaddled in a stable,

His names: Hosanna in the Highest, Counsellor,

Emmanuel, Wonderful, Lion of the tribe of Judah,

His voice; Like the sound of many waters,

His mission: To deliver,

Four gifts in One –

Something wanted,

Something needed,

Something to wear,

Something to read,

The Living Word.

    O’ Holy Night
    Holy poetry, reflecting on the night that Christ was born.
    ‘The earth’s axis rocked gently, a newborn’s cradle.’
    An event that would change the course of History and our lives forever.
    Thank you @suzette for sharing your poetic meditation in celebration of the Living Word we commemorate on Christmas.Day.
