Poem: Christmas Cheer

Christmas is that time of the year …

When we banish Scrooge ensuring he is not near . .

When we reach out to our neighbour

And spread love in keeping with the mandate of our Loving Saviour …

Let us ever celebrate ..

Banish hate …

To each other lovingly relate

Give a gift of love …

And behave as if we are a nation as loving as a dove

After all God is love …

Spread some cheer …

Here, there and everywhere …

Have a special wish …

And even to the less fortunate … do give a gift …

Whether The Christ-Child was born in June or December …?

That fact is immaterial to consider …

It is the fact that He was born …

Which like us humans was the norm ….

It was a most humble beginning …

For the Christ-Child to born in …

Alas! In Winter … in a lowly stable …?

May indeed be a fable …

Amen!

Hopeton O’Connor-Dennie, poet.
