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?


Its safe inside

as Jesus lay

where angels hum

on Christmas day;


and hope renewed

for all who come

as home is shared

with everyone.
