Christmas Poetry by Maggie Sorrels

Maggie Sorrels Christmas poetry goes beyond the superficial and reminds of the history and spiritual meaning of Christmas.

THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

Come said the shepherds, come see the babe
Born for us, so the angels say
In a stable small, in a manger laid
Come said the shepherds, come see the babe.

But I had goods to sell in Bethlehem town
With so many tourists gathered around
I sold all my wares and rode off that day
Away from the miracle there in the hay.

Come said the shepherds, come see the babe
Born for us, so the angels say
In a stable small, in a manger laid
Come said the shepherds, come see the babe.

But I had my errands and wrapping to do
Cooking and cleaning, more gifts to choose
And parties and cards and baking, no time
To fret over babies that weren’t even mine.

Come said the shepherds, come see the babe
Born for us, so the angels say
In a stable small, in a manger laid
Come said the shepherds, come see the babe.

The miracle is still; the evening sky sings
As angels keep watch o’er the tiny new king
And shepherds stand silent outside the stall,
While God gives second chances again to us all.

LITTLE BELLS OF CHRISTMAS
Little bells
sound in the night so dark
Calling,
leading us, showing the Way
Tiny bells,
Angels lighting our hearts
Singing,
Rejoice! We are reborn today!
Tiny bells
round the gentle lamb’s head
Garlands
of music; the shepherds were led
By Starlight
that silvered the hay
Where Jesus
the Christ Child, God’s precious gift, lay.
Magi Sorrels

THE STAR

I think
The Star that lit the sky
Above the Cave in Bethlehem
And led the Magi there
To welcome Him to Earth,
Did come again
That lonely night,
Beyond the Hill of Golgotha,
And waited,
Lighting up the stony grave
Wherein He lay,
To signal His return to Heaven.
