      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.
