Once upon a starry night
Once Upon A Starry Night
By A. Gagliardi
Once Upon a starry night amid fresh hay’s soft shining light,
on a rough-hewn manger bed, a newborn boy-child laid his head.
Once when shepherd’s flocks were keeping on that starry winter’s eve,
as the stars shown ‘round about them; Angel’s chorus shouted glee.
They then followed star-shine brightly to the Christ child, for to see
a young mother sing a new tune that lulled her baby boy to sleep.
Once upon a sojourned adventure of the wise men. Count them. Three.
Found a small child in that manger and fell down on bended knee.
Once that manger small & lowly; held a newborn baby’s head,
witnessed grateful hearts give honor to the Lamb whose heart was bled,
mutely saw that ancient message transform the human heart it led,
and gave silent confirmation to the message that it said.
