***This is a sonnet in the form of ABBA ABBA CDECDE***
When King Herod called the money changer
To count all the people across the land
From Galilee Sea to Bethlehem sand
Baby boys were born in extreme danger.
Wisemen came from distant countries stranger
While sleeping lowly shepherds took a stand
When an angel came and held up his hand
To share the news of hope born in a manger.
Followed across the fields a glowing star
to a stable with animals so stark
the humble bundle lay awake that night
as shepherds and wisemen traveled so far.
To this world of despair and broken dark,
He’s brought peace, hope, and joy, ’cause He is light.
