Christmas Cry!

by Kevin T McEneaney

To stand by the womb when a child is born

conjures central wonder of life on earth.

For a mother to push out her newborn

to the comfort and hope of family

is a miracle gift from Otherworld.

We are here today to celebrate birth

in all its mystery and fertile joy:

hope that a child will make a difference

in curing ills of social disfunction.

And, thus, we sing together of this joy,

affirm our commitment to each other,

embrace your neighbor with all good wishes.

Let tongue and vocal cords acclaim this joy:

Let us, together, shout Alleluia!
