In a Stable

Mary wasn’t softly glowing;

I am sure the pain was showing.

Joseph must have felt so helpless,

Far from home, alone and friendless.

Mary’s hair was damp with sweat,

Mary’s hair was damp with sweat, Full of hay; no coronet

Mary’s hair was damp with sweat, Full of hay; no coronet Rested on her tangled tresses;

No painted face, no pretty dresses.

Likely, walls and roof weren’t new;

Likely, walls and roof weren’t new; Chills and drafts run ‘round and through;

Smells of animals and fodder:

Not a setting great with honour.

Baby Jesus likely cried:

Baby Jesus likely cried: Awkward, cold, dissatisfied.

Shepherds, kings, came to revere,

But there was else than perfect cheer.
