ANGELS OF CHRISTMAS
Nativity figures from their box are retrieved,
Near a crackling fire on a Christmas Eve.
Each is unwrapped with excited haste,
Then slowly, carefully, thoughtfully placed.
The scene comes to life when viewed by a child,
The babe seems to stir, and the mother just smiled.
Safeguarded here and kept far from danger,
The baby is kissed and laid in a manger.
This night is for children,
and their spirits can lift us,
They are the magic, the guardians,
the “Angels of Christmas”.
