Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and Angels gave the sign.
~Love Came Down at Christmas, Christina Georgina Rossetti, 1885
This is the irrational season
When love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason
There’d have been no room for the child.
~After Annunciation, Madeleine L’Engle, 1978
Madeleine L’Engle is one of my favorite authors. She makes a good point in her poem.
I hope you’re having a blessed holiday season. Happy new year!
Happy New Year to you too! Enjoy the season!
