HALLELUJAH! This magnificent piece of poetry is so deep!

I loved to read it more than once...I even printed it out and faced every descriptive verse with much, much appreciation! Then I found that great light which is normally concealed from human sight!

Your great CHOICE OF EXPRESSIVE WORDS has shed a halo round that lovely and exotic scenery in an ordinary barn-- after "A newborn lamb released his voice with guilless harmony"

Indeed we do take cattle for granted!Yet, You ministered to us --certainly up to picturing God's Bulls to blessing the evening with a Christmas Carol.

I appreciate the art in which you portrayed how they were--before and after--the midnight Christmas Star that illuminated "the barn-life that mirrored humanity"

Thank You Beloved Friend for all these rich lessons.
THANK YOU! MAY GOD BLESS YOU MORE AND MORE...AMEN.

Cute poem that practically begs to be illustrated!
What a seasoned writer you are!!!! So much substance to this.... Amazing! I'm still trying to grasp it all. Delicious!

Loved it - the sights, sounds and smells - the "sibling" quibbling made me feel like it was Christmas at my husband's family (he is one of 11)!
Masterful! It's all I can say.
Your masterful poem creates a mood with well chosen words. The last stanza is especially brilliant.
Each time I read the poem, more insight appeared, amazing writing.
