HUMBLE BREATHING

Free Verse

Before the Stable

KNEELING BEFORE THE CHRISTMAS STABLE

SPEECHLESS BEFORE GOD MADE NEWBORN

WHILE THE OX AND ASS GAVE YOU THE BEST GIFT

THEIR WARMING BREATH TO BREAK AWAY THE COLD

IN MY NOTHINGNESS

DO I TREMBLE TO THANK YOU FOR COMING IN THE FLESH

TO SAVE THE WORLD, TO SAVE ME FROM MYSELF

your scribe for love
