Merry Christmas!

From my treasure book, here’s a poem by Dunstan Thompson:

Fragment for Christmas

Dear Lord, and only ever faithful friend,

For love of us rejected, tortured, torn –

And we were there; who on the third day rose

Again, and still looks after us; descend

Into each wrecked unstable house; be born

In us, a Child among Your former foes.
