AMIDST THE LOWING KINE

Posted by Admin on Thursday, 25th May 2006, 00:00

Housed amidst the lowing kine,
Mary suffers, bears a son:
with love glowing, yet not knowing
God’s great work on Earth’s begun.

Star led thro’ the silent night,
shepherds at the door attend:
stand in rapture, know a chapter
of their lives has reached its end.

Wise men from afar pay homage,
gifts before the manger lay:
light divine on faces shine,
His halo turning night to day.

While the Holy Child lies sleeping,
tranquil by the Virgin’s side,
those men elate initiate
the festival of Christmastide.
