Luke 2.8-14

For Christmas Eve a poem I wrote--"Luke 2.8-14"--two years ago.
they did not seem to notice,
grazing, oblivious
that the sky was burning,
that this world was ending.
each icy fleck
grew and warmed,
and exploded into this conflagration of heaven.
nor did they seem to hear,
grazing, deaf
to the melody cascading
over the grass and ceders.
a Song
that seemed so very old
and ancient,
but News to us.
