AVE MARIA


Ave Maria
Our saint
She comes down from heaven
To proclaim
The birth of a king
The king and the ruler of the world
Ave Maria
Let the king rule the world
Ave Maria
The prophets came also to celebrate
The birth of our king
On Christmas Day
And that little Jesus
Laid down in a manger
Ave Maria
The star of Bethlehem is shining high above the sky
On a clear night in Bethlehem
Ave Maria
You and the prophets brought gifts to the king
Ave Maria
The little Jesus is the Son of Mary and Joseph
Ave Maria
We will crown our little Jesus
And we will call him king
Ave Maria
We may sleep safe under thy care
Ave Maria
Protect us from evil things
Ave Maria
Save us daily
Ave Maria
Listen to our daily prayers
Ave Maria
Answer our prayers
Ave Maria
Between the shadows
We saw you living with the prophets
Ave Maria
You returned back to heaven
Once more where you belong
Ave Maria
Lover of my soul
Let me sleep in peace

    Not a big fan of religious writes but I must confess that this one is beautiful. Each line is so honestly heartfelt and the ending is just gorgeous. A calm an ad peaceful poem. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
