Christmas Medley (A poem)

by Danielle Dumas


Twinkle twinkle little star,

How I wonder at who You are.

Up above the world so high

You came near, shining Your light.

Pointing the way-to all who want to see:

to a tiny stable, and a newborn baby.


Lay down your sweet head

and listen. Instead

of angel choirs–hear Mary humming

haltingly; but sweet and low

Pondering the things she does know.


And in a nearby field,

(while shepherds watched by night)

angels appeared! Telling all

to go worship and follow the light.


And farther away still,

wise men from the east,

came seeking You, to kneel

at Your feet.


Oh night divine-

Oh star of wonder, star of night!

Draw us nearer,

Let us hear

the angel’s voices! And

Guide us to thy perfect light.
