Poem: One Instance in a Forgotten Manger

One Instance in a Forgotten Manger
by: Anna E

One instance in a forgotten manger,
eternity collapses into time.
Prophesied by the wise and
longed for by the hearts of men,
a revelation,
in finite space
where ancient hopes converge
and light shines anew.
The face of the sleeping Babe
stars of heavens puts to shame.
In his sleep he remakes the world
with every sigh he breathes.

O frail Newborn, center of creation,
little great mystery angel pronounced,
reign from thy wooden throne
as we laud thee:
our worthy King! our precious Victim!
