Poem: It’s Christmas Time

It’s Christmas Time

by Ghita Manaila

 

It’s Christmas time, the most beautiful holiday

It is time for carols, it is time for play.

Play of snowflakes, here and there

Play of the children from everywhere

Everywhere Santa is sharing toys

Everywhere Santa is sharing joys

Joys and happiness

Joys and soul peace.

Peace from above, heavenly one

Peace brought to us by Jesus, the Son

Son of God and  Son of Man

Son born in Bethlehem according to a plan

Plan of salvation, plan full of grace

Plan performed here, in this very place

Place visited by shepherds and by angels

Place visited by Magi, the eastern strangers

Strangers in the world, aliens on the Earth

Strangers are we all like Jesus at His birth.

Birth and life, death and resurrection

Birth and Ascension are proves of God’s affection.

Affection for the whole human race

Affection mixed with charming divine grace.

Grace, mercy and peace from Jesus our Savior

Grace, saved by grace from our bad behavior

Behavior and sinful nature

Behavior typical to human creature.

Creature with inclinations to scrimmage

Creature made by God in His own image

Image full of beauty, image of perfection

Image received by man at Creation

Creation , rebellion then Abel’s blood

Creation followed by a world flood.

Flood and destruction, olive branch and dove

Flood and eight souls saved by God’s love.

Love, sacrifice and fully paid bill

Love  revealed completely on Calvary Hill

Hill of the Skull, the place where Jesus died

Hill of the pain where Christ was crucified.

Crucified by Romans in the past

Crucified for our sins at last.

Last but not least for the sinners who were in  danger

Last but not least  Jesus, the baby was born in a manger

Manger, a poor stable in a building wing

Manger, only a manger for our beloved King?

King of kings and Lord of lords

King is the Word in the world of the words.

Words of gratitude for Christmas days

Words of forgiveness and bright sun rays.

Rays

Days.
