Christmas Glow?

Christmas Glow

Warm and peaceful

Sweet and hopeful

Dreams abound on certain days.

Will they wither?

Will they prosper?

Is it up to us to say?


Is the Star of Stars a signpost?

Will we learn to give or take?


An eternal question drifts

In and out

Through mind and heart.


Wise men seek the truth in vain.


Time will never work or favour

Those, who question

Where or when

Still, we hope and raise and ponder

Riddles that we’ll never crack


Truths and myths cannot endure

Cold and distant probes and prods.


Maybe it is wrong

To shun

Every trouble and affliction.


Stop your anguish and be quiet

Let the yuletide end your quest

Star of Stars
