The guide that led
Them from the East
Shined at night from afar.
Its magnificence glowed for all to see.
Closer they crept, these Three Wise Men,
Across the plains and hills of country.

Prophecy had this King proclaimed.
In their travels they learned not His name.

They traveled for days,
For miles and miles,
To seek the light from the star;
That shined so bright as they traveled from afar.

It led them to the child where He lay.
The child that laid upon the hay.
His mom and dad were OH! so proud,
And all the angels were singing out-loud.

This is why we have Christmas Day.
To worship the babe who lay on the hay.

He came to life on Christmas Day.
To save us from sin; to take them away.

This is a nice poem, but I don't understand the title in relation to it.

I liked this poem telling the story of christmas and it wasn't till I read the comment that I actually realized the title did seem strange! But then I thought, maybe that is just to get us to read and if that is the case I'm glad!!

I'm not sure about the title, but it's quite a nice poem.

Carol, your poem is lovely but unfortunately we had to disqualify it due to word count. It was close, but just not quite close enough to even scrape through with the little extra "grace allowance" we give. Your poem was 134 words, and the word count minimum is 150. I always hate disqualifying entries, but particularly when they are so close. I hope you'll keep rising to the Challenge - just keep the limits in mind when you do. It's 150 words minimum and 750 words maximum. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
