        of Mary’s Baby, born to save lots of

        so a few years in the past;

    a season for me to attend for you

        although you’ve got already come

        and claimed a house, your dwelling place, 

        inside my coronary heart and soul;

    a season for me, in religion, to observe,

        in these purple candled days,

        for the way you will contact my soul this yr

        with therapeutic, peace and mercy…


I give you these Creation days,

my vigil to your coming:

    my ready, sure, for Christmas

    however much more my longing

    for the day, the enjoyment, the peace in retailer

    for many who belief in you…

Could this Monday morning providing

be my prayer by Creation’s days
