Treasure Island

All Times of December

You live in this, and dwell in my eyes all times of December

We’d feast in the smoking patio with carols and lanterns of gold

We have always been good together; days, months, years

Father and child, child and father!

Perhaps thirty days or nine days of Christmas close to union in the Eucharist

I could have told you more stories, one thousand and one nights, or we could have laughed more - together

But in November, you bade goodbye, for all Saints day

I have realized how perfect you could be: my zeal!

And how beautiful the Cathedral lights shine!

And that is why you brought me there, in days of youth

Like nectar, the rice cake in my mouth stays

Like Jesus, the Bread you break, in me, lives

So shall Christmas be…

Peace on earth, goodwill to men!

So shall Christmas be...

Love on earth, life eternal!

So shall Christmas be…

You and me all times of December.

How beautiful when the Cathedral lights shine!

How perfect in God, all, we would be!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
