Hope


Alone we walked and in pain
As blade or thorn shall twist
Or loud the silence talked, refrained
And echoes in the mist
Born as angels sing, a light
Once on earth before remains
Peace His Love brings to night
As each new life is more, proclaims
His birth to shine as angels sing
As the universe sang the Birth
Long ago or this night brings
Each babe the hope of earth
As thorn or joy rebounds
His love on earth resounds.

    In the misty night, when the world shivered in chill and despondency, angels sang of peace and joy and the world rejoiced over the birth of Light! The song of peace and hope those angels sang rebounds leaving beautiful echoes! A lovely write! (Report) Reply
