Rising Star

Rising Star

Why stand awed by the stars of the night,
Light from ancient bodies now demised?

Ponder instead about
that child on your lap,
Nesting warmly against your neck.

For even as he quietly slumbers,
This star is alive!
He rises with every passing hour.

~ D.F.

“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
~ Luke 2:52
