THE STRANGER

comes a Stranger
to the stable                                                 008..11.7.12
small and fragile
to be cradled
in ornament
and evergreen

comes a Stranger
in the darkness
singing carols
bright with glory
while an angel                                                   223..10.17.13
lifts her trumpet

comes the Stranger
to the winter
of our world
offering the light
of peace and joy
with open hands
