Yours Is The Calla Star [carol] - Poem by Mary Angela Douglas

yours is the calla star
over the manger, bending

the diamond refraction
of ultimate stillness

mere breathing causes
the air to chime but angel feathers
cannot quell us
jangling childhood's mismatched bells
we stop bewildered, at the halo round
our footsteps in the snow and
looking straight up

we keep forever
all the lilies in the night sky
all the lilies-
