A World Wrapped in Icicles

hoarfrost sunlight

A world wrapped in icicles,

doomed to dark night,

has suddenly been dazzled

by holy white light!

A Son born of Mary

and laid in the straw

has come to deliver,

to usher in thaw.

Morning Delivers

morning chirp

Morning delivers her first-born sun,

wrapped in swaddling cloud;

shepherd-hills covered with fleeces spun

of sugar before manger are bowed.

Birds upon wings of angel-dew

sing glories to all who will hear;

those who are wise will do well to pursue

as blessings of Christmas appear.
