The  Gift  That  Gives  Forever



No  pretty  paper  or  shiny  bows,  the  gift  came  
Wrapped  in  strips  of  cloth,  no  oohs  or  awes      
Were  heard  that  night,  nothing  tremendous  would    
Man  behold,  no  trumpet  herald,  no  
Gold  embossed  announcements  sent

No  headline  news,  no  chariots  came,  no  killing
Of  the  fatted  calf,  no  proclamation  to  royalty  
Sent,  no  cheering  crowds,  no  flowers gave
Little  anticipation  of  this  event,  no  showers
 Thrown,  no  pictures  taken

  No  Doctor  called,  no  midwife  came,  no
Fanfare  this  gift  was  given,  no  stork
Proudly  placed  on  the  lawn,  no  pretty
Balloons  in  blue  were  bought,  naught
For  a  poor  babe,  born  that  night

  No  media  coverage  of  this  event,  no
Congratulatory  messages  by  heads  of  
State,  angels  rejoiced,  animals  brayed  
This  Babe  born,  to  mend  the  breach  of  God
And  man,  in  a  little  town  called  Bethlehem.
