His Advent

She beheld no light
deferred to sight
A simple babe
nestled so low, unrested
mid deckled straw
on yonder carpet
foreign soil
But nought He may
and nought He might
lurking, unamoured
amid oxen
Rest O Babe
no tune so rare melodious
as silently, silently
There waves the straw
flickered candle
silhouttes a mystery
unravelled, undetermined
a mysterious history.
Question its depth
behold its height
It's yours, your own
untold, unknown mystery
Cast its mold on me
Incarnate Son
Behold I wonder
another mystery
in living testimony
to ponder
within me
Your Advent.
