A Different Scene

I can’t say i’m surprised

At all the time that’s spent

Preparing for what Christmas Day will bring

Gifts are bought galore

And food set for a feast

To those who do the work it’s maddening


What truly baffles me

Is the beginning this day had

And how different was the scene way back hen

A quiet manger bed

With some shepherds drawing near

No feast, few gifts gave way to praise of men


This Christmas take a moment

Of quiet contemplation

And leave the hustle bustle of this world

Lift up your voice in praise

Have a quiet time to think

That today we celebrate our newborn Lord





In response to the daily prompt Maddening
