So Young

Such a young face
Singing her song
Magnifying her Lord
Offering herself
Amazed at God's choice
Humbly obedient
Incarnating Christ

Such young feet
Needing to rest
Dangling tiredly
Journeying purposefully
Fulfilling prophecy
Earnestly awaiting
The King of kings

Such a young hand
Tenderly cradling
Gently reassuring
Mother's love
Warmly welcoming
Her firstborn
Light of the world

Such young eyes
Peering so tenderly
Searching imploringly
Bonding willingly
Mystery manifesting
Fruit of her womb
God Himself


Anne Linington
Christmas 2008

This poem was inspired by a production of Roger Jones musical “While Shepherds watched” in which Mary was played by a 14 year-old.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I think it's amazing that such simple yet perfect word choices can create such a beautiful and complex picture in my mind. I've missed reading your work. It's lovely, as usual. Lesley-Anne

I like how this poem portrays the ordinary, used by God as an opportunity/vehicle for the miraculous.

Hi Annie, This is so beautifully simple and I like the fact that you were inspired by a performance (I am an actress). You commented on some of my work that I wrote in 2006, 2 yrs after my daughter died. I have not written much at all since then, but would like to write again. Kind regards, kim
