Christmas Day


Wise Magi followed a bright shining star
Young children pray for dazzling new presents
His influence spread to lands near and far
All on one event – a male child’s nascence

What is this all-pervading influence?
Why are the nations drawn to his caring?
A joiner of no great significance
generated great feelings of sharing.

Should we just accept our great good luck?
Lead our lives as He would want us to
Should we question the tales from the book?
Or follow the teachings as He would do

The beauty of Christmas – simplicity
The message followed with humility.
