Christmas - The Lost Hope


Hope shone awhile in darkness
illumined the path of goodness
offered a cure for our sadness.
Hope sought to make a difference
in a world deluded by its intelligence
shackled by avarice and indifference

Hope dwelt among us
Truth was truly with us
we heard him, and our eyes beheld him
we knew him, and our hands touched him.
People, lift up your hearts,
banish hypocrisy and avarice,
Hope is returning this Christmas.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
