Happy Birthday To You. - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Christmas mass at twelve,
To mark the birth of a kid,
When Mary bore her son,
Joseph was so gracious.

Took her son in his hand,
Wiped out the body fluid,
Cleaned Him, not bathed,
The arrival of a messiah untied.

Calves and the cows looked after Him,
Chirping birds and insects made the lullaby,
Mary, the mother, was too tired,
While the cute infant was taken care.

Let the baby boy has his good sleep,
He has a duty to do on his Father’s Instruction,
Let the infant feels the warmth of His mummy,
He needs to endure the shocking reality.

An infant who has been adored since young,
He has a crown and a cloak of white and red,
He stands on the globe with His kind look,
Happy Birthday to you., Jesus of Nazareth.

    One of the best poems read by me about the birth of Jesus and about the Christmas Mass to herald that auspicious occasion. Thanks, VS. I am tempted to quote a few lines as under:
    The arrival of a messiah untied.
    Calves and the cows looked after Him,
    He stands on the globe with His kind look,
    Happy Birthday to you., Jesus of Nazareth.
