Subject(s): Christmas; Nativity, The
MARY at her window:
Tonight the blue star shines upon our hill
As on the cattle shed brief years ago ...
What is it strikes my heart with sudden chill?
I do not want to know!
My Baby quietly sleeps in His white bed.
How foolish is this sense of coming loss!
So sweet He lies with little arms outspread.
Why should I see a cross?
I shall look out again at His bright star.
It minds me of the time when angels sang,
And makes me dimly glad. Though dark years scar,
God's will must be.
