My Christmas Sweet, O Paragon of Festivals. A Dedication to Missy Smith
My Christmas Sweet, O paragon of Festivals!
O Flame! You who are encircled by star lights
And vivacious streams of Beauty.
Your myriad eloquent hymnal voices,
Fascinates my core with their enchanting power.
Mesmerised by Your pulsing passion,
I dance with a cherubic joy,
Knowable only beyond speech,
Deep within the profundity of the Soul.
Delight, O my Radiance-Delight, how spirited
Is the merriment of Your children!
Gifts, jollity, food and amusement,
Embrace their Lives,
As they praise your name in joyful tears,
Embedded upon their gleeful Spirit.
Sweet nativity! Lord Jesus, wrapped in swaddling clothes
And lying in a manger,
Thy resplendent Victory,
Has immersed me in its sweet embrace;
Your Light Illuminate my Heart, with a spectacle of rainbows.
Heavenly angels dance on Your bosum, as a pageantry
Of Shepherds and Magi’s exalt your name;
Following the pathway of a luminous star.
Come, Sweet Jesus! Captivate this Being
With Your self-amorous effulgence,
Casting away this veil of night.
Infatuate all Christian Souls in their diaspora;
Let them await the mince pies; the Christmas puddings,
So as to drink from Your supernal salmon-tinted wine.
Undrape their eyes, to see the inner gifts of Santa Claus:
The opulence of Mary’s haven,
So that they continue to dance
With an ecstatic joy unspoken,
Within the magnificence and greatness of the Soul.
