"I will hold Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens.



All About Mothers

Christmas Poetry


The Friendly Beasts

    Jesus, our brother, kind and good,
    Was humbly born in a stable rude,
    And the friendly beasts around Him stood;
    Jesus, our brother, kind and good.

    "I", said the donkey, shaggy and brown
    "I carried His mother up hill and down;
    I carried her safely to Bethlehem town;
    I", said the donkey, shaggy and brown.

    "I", said the cow, all white and red,
    "I gave Him my manger for His bed;
    I gave Him my hay to pillow His head;
    I", said the cow, all white and red.

    "I", said the sheep with curly horn,
    "I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm.
    He wore my coat on Christmas morn.
    I", said the sheep with curly horn.

    "I", said the dove from the rafters high,
    "Cooed Him to sleep, that He should not cry,
    We cooed Him to sleep, my mate and I.
    I", said the dove from the rafters high.

    And every beast by some good spell,
    In the stable dark was glad to tell
    Of the gift he gave Immanuel,
    The gift he gave Immanuel.

    English Carol, 12th Century
