liturgy of lessons and carols

Dec snow 2013

I heard the bells
chiming in the cold north breeze
wind chimes sound the carol
on this Christmas Eve day.
***
Let heaven and nature sing –
tiny finches twitter in the evergreen boughs
of fragrant cedar,
rejoicing on this Christmas Eve day.
***
O little town,
streets wet with rain,
reflections of hope and dreams
on this Christmas Eve day.
***
In the bleak midwinter,
skies hard with sleet
gray on gray on gray
on Christmas Eve day.
***
The holly and the ivy
caught up in the old hickory tree,
evergreen and ever new
on this Christmas Eve day.
