The Manger (Christmas poem)


The Christmas story of that first night


The Manger

The manger has been cleaned and prepared,
With all the straw the animals need,
Placed into the stable to be shared,
Between the animals, for their feed.

To the stable, with its manger ready,
Come two seeking for a place they can stay.
Joseph, a carpenter from Galilee,
Mary, who has a baby on the way.

Then during the night, Mary gives birth,
So, from the manger, a crib is made.
The son of God has come to the Earth,
And into the manger, he is laid.

Mary gently lays down his sweet head,
Our Lord sleeping peacefully within.
From such a humble and lowly bed,
Does the story of our Lord begin.

Christmas, A time of forgiveness (poem)


Let Christmas bring healing and peace


Christmas, a time of forgiveness

A time of forgiveness, a time of goodwill,
A time to forget anger and let the wounds heal.
A time for the hope that came with His birth,
A time to reflect upon His work on this earth.

A time to remember those who cannot be here,
To raise up a glass and remember them with cheer.
Of the joy that you shared with them a long time ago,
For although they are gone, their love you still know.

A time of celebration with others around,
To make new friends of any strangers you have found,
To give to those who are less fortunate than you,
To help them find happiness, their hope to renew.

This time of the year should always bring peace,
As we look for the star that rose in the East.
As we remember the goodness that came from above,
And pray that to others, we can share some of His love.
