Poetry Corner: The Mood of Christmas

Portrait_of_Shakespeare_-_geograph.org.uk_-_956704The Mood of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the start in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,

The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.

– Howard Thurman
