Twirling Girl: A Christmas Poem

Twirling Girl: A Christmas Poem

Share

Dust swirling ‘round diminutive feet
Broom brushing dust away
Calmly singing, twirling girl
Found unsuspecting, today

All alone she was, she thought
Tending to homey tasks
A presence, a light, peace with fright
Cherubic voice; she gasps

A message bold to simple girl
From Eternity into Time
God in flesh, born to die
Contented womb, the sign

Dust swirling ‘round diminutive feet
Broom brushing dust away
Merrily singing, twirling girl
Found with Child, today
