The Cross And The Crib - Poem by Dan J. Najvar

'Twas just before Christmas
Just before dawn
I woke from my slumber
With a stretch and a yawn
There was the cross
And there was the tree
And there was an angel
Looking down at me
There was the crib
And there was the star
And there was the child
To explain who we are
The morn was silent
No sound but the wind
To announce the greatest day
That's ever been
I wrote this all down
As it was given to me
That all might see the Word
That sets us free.
