Counting down to the moment

Of ultimate ecstasy foment…

We stay awake

For children’s’ sake,

Bearing with credit card torment.

Meaning slips year by year,

The older ways are more clear…

Yearly reminders

No commercial blinders,

Repetitious–but our conscience clears.

Come now to Bethlehem,

Marvel at the Babe again…

For joy running deep

While the Child’s sleep

Calms us to thank God for Him.

–Jonathan Caswell
