Heart Music

 

A song burst forth

From the tiny drum.

There was love and hope

In the rhythm of its notes.

 

All anger and hate began to

Fade as the song played on.

The present moment started to

Shine with an inner light.

 

The future would be better.

For the smile on the drummer boy,

And the sigh from baby Jesus,

Confirmed this so.

Christmas Unicorn
 

Over this hill, down over yon,

Lay the manger of Jesus’s birth.

Baby unicorn takes a nap-

Tired from the exciting day.
 

He dreams of the new Babe-

Recalling His smile.

Feeling safe with Him.

Knowing that He is special.

*—*

They say on Christmas Eve

All horses have unicorn horns.

Have you ever looked?

Do you believe?

Merry Christmas!

On A Cold Winter’s Night

On A Cold Winter’s Night

 

On a cold winter’s night

So long ago,

The Heralds proclaimed

The birth of our Savior.

 

It was

The miraculous beginning

Of a new chapter

In our history on Earth.

 

A star guided the wise men

To a humble manger

Where a mother gave birth

To her first son.

 

When the angels beckoned,

The shepherds came

To pay homage to Him

Their newborn King.

 

Jesus’ gentle smile

Touched their very souls,

And all knew that God

Had remembered them.
