First Advent

First Advent
2nd December 2018

They shake their crowns
Pine, spruce and fir
Shiver under a grey blanket
Incessant loss of blues
The road becomes a river

At homely hearth the wreath
Laid out in cones and candles
A tune from far and past
Wells up beside a ladle

A proclamation of advent
See the first is lit, ruby-red
Rejoice, your Saviour is near
