Merry Christmas



Mice In The Hay - Leslie Norris

out of the lamplight
whispering worshipping
the mice in the hay

timid eyes pearl-bright
whispering worshipping
whisking quick and away

they were there that night
whispering worshipping
smaller than snowflakes are

quietly made their way
whispering worshipping
close to the manger

yes they were afraid
whispering worshipping
as the journey was made

from a dark corner
whispering worshipping
scuttling together

But He smiled to see them
whispering worshipping
there in the lamplight

stretched out His hand to them
they saw the baby King
hurried back out of sight
whispering worshipping

Crystal, I love the mouse picture at the end--like an unexpected Christmas present tucked away in the very toe of the stocking. Thank you for your wonderful blog (and for bringing me to Connie Willis this year--and through me, a chain of others who are now reading her).

Have a great Christmas and a good 2012.
