What Christmas celebrates is simply Love,
Provided by God’s blessings from above,
Configured as His soul-engendered Son
Made manifest to rout the Evil One.
The Devil is all hate personified
In whom ill-will and recklessness abide,
The natural way for any uninspired
By whispers of what’s eminently desired.
To hear those whispers, listen with your heart
Instructing you the practice of love’s art,
Which starts by knowing that we’re all one kind,
All equally and eagerly inclined
To flourish in the warmth and radiant light
Of Love—preserved from enmity and blight.
