The Star of Christmas Day

You didn't have a home or bed
Your mother wasn't even wed
Your Father wasn't from this earth
And many wondered about your birth

Yet You came for all: You came to love
You weren't aloof though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of  Christmas Day

Your place of birth was not a home
You rested where the beasts would roam
The rumors flew from place to place
Your mother dealt with some disgrace

Yet You came for all: You came to love
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

The angels sang of You to all
But those who came were meek and small
The shepard boys the working class
Were the first: to see, to glance

Yet You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

The wisest kings: the magi clan
Were studing stars and saw God's plan
Opening up for all to see
These magi came and saw Royalty

Yet, You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

Today we sing and we celebrate
An old tradition, a memoable date
The day You came from Heaven above
To share Your life and give us Love

Yet, You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

And the hosannas rang out high

In a town not known to all
Lay a baby in a stall
Though He wasn't big or strong
He was adored by the angel throng

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Though His dwelling was so poor
And there wasn't a roof or a door
This Immortal warmed us all
By His presence in a stall

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Nothing great in Him was seen
Though His Mother kept things clean
Humble creatures warmed His feet
And simple shepards were first to greet

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

A royal group from way out far
Sought out this Babe, with His own star
Exquisite gifts they all did bring
Offerings fitting for an Immortal King

And the hosannas rang out High
In the Heavens and through the sky 
Born for us: this infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

We are all invited to be
A precious part of this Mystery
Carrying on in our own way
The humble message of Christmas Day

And the hosannas ring out High
In the Heavens and through the sky 
Born for us: this infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Like a freezer around us

An icy jacket is covering the ground
And an eery silence is echoing around
Crispy crunches are supporting my feet
While a chilling air holds a meet and greet

The birds aren't chirping so loudly today
And a movement of branches is giving them away
Nothing is actively greeting the dawn
But a slew of icycles come out of her yawn

Like a freezer around us the day will begin
Challenging our will power so deep within
Too cold to explore it...this chilliness outside
Yet the pup and I will enjoy the slippery slide.

The clouds above us are all awesomely grey
As they snuggle together to chill up the day
The wind with its might is alll blowing around
And singing how the winter is starting to sound...

So rise up this morning and sleep not too late
For the beauty of dawn has arranged you a date
Peek out of those windows and see all the white
Layered so thinly like a powdery delight..

Wintry wonder

Icy, icy sings the wind
Touching heart and soul within
Whispering secrets of the day
Wintry weather is on its way

Should we run or not at all
It's  too cold to be the Fall
All the trees are sparkling bright
With the sleet from overnight

Would it be so wrong to stay
Inside the warmth of home today
And admire from here inside
All the icy artwork  outside?

Listen carefully if you will
To these moments calm and still
Freezing weather we can hear
If we pause with open ear

When the coldness keeps us in
And our clothing feels too thin
Then we have to snuggle near
All the heat that we have here..

Take a look outside today
If you're in a colder state
And reflect on all you see
There is an  infinite flow of beauty

Changing weather

Tiny rain drops dance around
As the Autumn end does sound
Freezing rain will soon be here
A wintery voice is drawing near

Weather forecast says it's true
Icier weather before day's through
Twas a season warm and fair
Now the chill is in the air

Darker clouds are in the sky
Whispering in the drops that fly
Enjoy this weather before day's through
Temps will chill and challenge you

Signs of winter


Today the breeze is blowing strong
Leaves are floating all day long
Soaring from the trees tops high
Whispering words as they drop by

Sending seed pods everywhere
Dying flowers gladly share
Bidding bye to one and all
Spring will waken seeds that fall

Firm the ground that's under foot
Fireplace burns and feels so good
Wintery breezes sing their song
Time for shorter days not long
