But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good
news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been
born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

(Luke 2:10) (NIV)


We know of cattle

in the stall.

But did more creatures

come to call

on heaven’s gift

so newly born

in manger’s loft

that holy morn?

Did stray dogs bark

or cats glide by

as angel’s glow

lit up the sky?

When shepherds came

where cattle stay

that Christmas morn

as Jesus lay

in manger’s bed

inside the stall—

when hope was born

for one and all.
