Nativity - Poem by Anthony Ward

Long distance friendships
Cards at Christmas
The rattle in the closet
Dust on the keyboard
Of an untuned grand
Reports and exhortations
Telephone bells, death knells
Christmas trees light up
The bones beneath the skin
The holly bush and silent sin
Beside the river huddled down
Sleeping faces crib and crown
