Bird Psalm

On Christmas Eve, unable to lead worship, I keep the day safe for us both as we witness the coming of the Christ child, softly, gently into the world. We say our own prayers and give thanks for the kindness and generosity of all the good people around us and the friends we meet on line.

 

Bird Psalm. By UA Fanthorpe.

The swallow said,

He comes like me,

Longed for, unxpectedly.

 

The superfial eye

Will pass him by

Said the Wren

 

The best singer ever heard

No one will take much notice

Said the blackbird

 

The Owl said

He is who, who is he

Who enters the heart as soft

As my soundless wings, as me.
