A Gift for Christmas …


“These are the Christmas joys I wish for you:
Sacrament, first, to greet the new-born Word;
Red sky and robins; noon an egg-shell blue;
At least one moment, when the air is stirred
By angels’ wings; at least tuthree gifts …
But these, like bulbs one plants and does not say,
Whose stems stand hidden, in the frozen drifts,
Shall be my secret, love, till Christmas Day.”

“Poem for Christmas Day” by Kathleen Norcross
