CHRISTMAS the day that Jesus was born
Heavenly gift of salvation to mankind,
Redemption promised since the eon of Adam.
Isaiah and the prophets saw Him a Star afar
Stigmatized with the sins of man, and
Traumatized by humanity gone berserk.
Mary the blessed Virgin Mother in humility
As shepherds kept watch on a winterâ€™s night
Surrendered Him from her sacred bowels.
