A Christmas Poem: Believe


"Do you believe in angels?"

A friend asked me that.
                                   Yes I do. Certainly I do.

How do I know?

I just know.

 The angel Gabriel

messenger from God

Came to tell Mary that she would conceive—


By the Holy Spirit

 said he.

And Mary believed.

In her heart, she believed.

By the Holy Spirit Christ was born

On Christmas Day.

So let us all celebrate

 this Holy Christmas Day

When the Divine Child was born in Bethlehem

Jesus the Son of God

And is born within us all again and again.
