UPON CHRIST HIS BIRTH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Strange news! A city full? Will none give way
Last Line: Their hearts, as well as inns, are made of clay.
Subject(s): Bible; Christmas; Religion; Nativity, The; Theology


Strange news! a city full? will none give way
To lodge a guest that comes not every day?
No inn, nor tavern void? yet I descry
One empty place alone, where we may lie:
In too much fullness is some want: but where?
Men's empty hearts: let's ask for lodging there.
But if they not admit us, then we'll say
Their hearts, as well as inns, are made of clay.
