Sighing Night

They deck the halls

And wistful sigh

So much has gobbled

Up the days

The shopping list

The cards sent out

So slippery in

The traffic’s maze.

They hear the songs

Of warm good will

And feeble prayers

For peace on earth

But down inside

They bungle still

The festive fount

That gives life worth.

The manger and

The wise men’s trek

Mere images

Within the blend

And shepherds heed

The angel songs

Of Glory come

In love for men.

Too tired now

To see Noel

As marvelous

And filled with Hope.

The Day flits by

The sparkle leaves

Through one more

Christ-less year

They grope.

Lord move with power

And shake their eyes

And hearts still cold

To Mercy’s Plan.

With revelation

Lift their weights

Enlighten to

Your Son born man.
