A SLO Yuletide blessing

Allan Cooper

By ALLAN COOPER

 

Friends and family come together

Each year this yuletide day

In shelter from the chilly weather

To admire a festive winter display

 

We’re mindful as this year doth end

That spring will at last return

Our hopes and dreams will transcend

All fear and earthly concern

 

And we laud the birth of a lowly child

Who lived a pauper’s life

Among people who were much reviled

Who endured great pain and strife

 

Yet a message of hope and angelic grace

Was born in a humble abode

To counter cruelty found everyplace

Alas, love became the mother lode

 

So we bring with us our goodly cheer

All the affection we have to share

We know this life will persevere

And love will triumph everywhere
