THE MANGER

Mother Mary
and Joseph,
angel and dream—
grace in Bethlehem.

A baby boy,
a star sign,
a miracle
manifestation.

Magi with gifts
of gold and
frankincense and
myrrh—all from the East.

Shepherds with sheep,
ox and ass,
man and beast—all
in adoration.XmasLogo (2)

HOLIDAY HOUSE

Christmas Day, pole to pole…
A CHRISTMAS NURSERY RHYME

Across the living room chimney piece
hung stockings made of felt and fleece…
ACROSS THE LIVING ROOM CHIMNEY PIECE

Up the bunk bed ladder, with a hop,
Little Susie met three angels at the top…
UP THE BUNK BED LADDER

Down to the kitchen caroling Granddad goes…
DOWN TO THE KITCHEN CAROLING

Kitty-cornered dining room —
a feline foursome spat!
KITTY-CORNERED DINING ROOM

Up with the Poinsettia, and grow,
Up with the Holly and Ivy;
Up with the Mistletoe,
Evergreen, all —
WINTERTIDE
