Advent II

Ah, little God, in an instant long in coming,

you broached to us this breachless veil,

bearing its weight in sullen flesh, and pulled aside

the cancerous curtain. Here, where once

we hid from the balm of healing touch, now

you lay fresh hope in scattered hay into which,

breathing lightly in cherubic light, has come

to rest, new life in an infant’s deep sleep.
