Treasure Island

Bob Fletcher

(December 25th 1954 / London)

And You Will Hear The Angels Sing


Far away and long ago
Connected through the years
A story of the King of Peace
Told through a veil of tears.

One child One night
A distant star, Far away Rejoices
Shines upon the King of Peace
All Nations lift their voices

No matter what you may believe
No matter where youre born
No matter what your Language
Behold the Child Forlorn

The Truth the light Dispels the night
The world is filled with love
Angels sing triumphantly
A choir from Above

That was far away and long ago
The hearts of man rejoicing
The love that he Bequeathed to you
Is still here everlasting

Just close your eyes and bow your head
And listen to your heart
And you will hear the Angels sing
Your life about to start

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was born on Christmas day 1954 I am not a religeous nut however I do believe in God. I was looking for a verse to put in christmas cards to people at the school where I work and I could not find anything appropriate so I jotted down a few lines and over a day or so came up with this poem. A freind took it to their local Church in Stanmore where it was published in the Church Magazine. So I thought I would share it here.

Merry Christmas everyone

Bob

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
