‘Tis the season to be jolly

On a drab and lonely hillside
Shepherds watched sheep
And sheep watched shepherds.
Nobodies. Nowhere. No-hopers.

In another world
A king entertained his guests:
Three important men,
Going places: following a star.

Suddenly the spotlight was on the shepherds.
Blazing light brighter than the sun
Shining in their unshaven faces.
They thought their end had come.

“Relax dear brothers,”
The shining angel said.
“It’s all good. I bring good news.
Great joy for you and for the world.”

Back on the highway
The wealthy travellers
Approached the town
Of Bethlehem.

Suddenly the star bright
Stopped above a cattle shed.
Great joy seized the men.
Exceeding great joy!

The shepherds too
Were filled with joy
When they saw
The child in the shed.

The wealthy men knelt
And worshipped.
The shepherds returned to their hillside
Rejoicing. Hopeless no longer.

This Christmas
whether you’re watching sheep
or feasting with kings
May you hear the angel say:
“Dear friend. Don’t worry!”
May the good news of Christ
Give you reason to be jolly!

(For those interested, I wrote this poem on Christmas Eve 2010 and posted it on my blog www.amazinglove.co.za)
