❧✿❧ 7 Days To Christmas❧✿❧


[image from google dot com]

OF TWILIGHT AND FISHERS OF MEN
And, before that renowned midnight,
Of glorious angelic singing voices;
To the silence and shepherds afield;
Came the twilight finale, emerging stars;
Twinkling, day and night sparkling prophesy;
In tongues of scions, and stocks of Jesse;
Sumptuous in rough skins of wild honey,
In disturbed nests of locusts winged;
For nary any such appointment,
Again, ever shall be given for Eden's fall,
For these are, for certain, the last days.

  2. You chose the perfect line to begin and end this poem, Gillena. We are forced, these days, to view religion in context of world affairs.
