A baby in a manger
wrapped in thin linen
smiled at the simplicity
of a rhythmic thumping drum

Over his head a stables roof
the songs of barn animals
serenade his first lullaby
a mother and father by his side

It mattered not to the tiny child
that others had much more than he
the healing light within his eyes
would bring joy to all for many years

In this world of violence and crime
where wealth and fame
eclipse love and care
wrap your heart in the barest linen
and remember
