some days

Christmas Eve - Year B

in those days
now misremembered
we think life was numbered
but that is only a story

in those days
we made things up
to make them sound better
than ever they were

in those days
we connected birth
with music of the spheres
even angels sing

in those days
we gathered protectors around
for no one would mess around
with shepherd’s staff and sling

in these days
we are misremembering still
chosing our child
over all others

in these days
we are still making things up
to make us look better
than we have so far been

in these days
our organizational complexes
care not a whit
for mutual care

in days to come
we pray to not misremember
our source of security
is sign beyond surity

in days to come
we pray to not make up stories
and to trust the mystery
of experience

in days to come
no matter what comes
we will protect one another
honoring and rejoicing

in those days
in these days
in days to come
ponder deep and treasure well
