Christmas Day

Christmas Day
by McKinley Cash
Up on the wings of the morning
From the mystic land of Nod!
To greet the day that's borning,
When man drew close to God.
"Love ye one another,"
We heard the Master say,
And one way or the other,
We'll answer that today.
The Lily of the Valley
And Sharon's red, red Rose
Are treasured in the tally
As the heart overflows.
Let's ope the parcels now,
And as we snip each seal,
The woundrous why and how
The content will reveal.
All thoughts are centered home
In Love's own master plan,
For on this day has come
God's greatest gift to man.
(McKinley Cash was my great uncle and this is one of the poems he left for us in his collected work Alabama Folk Tales. A copy of Uncle Cash's work will be available in the Sulligent Public Library in January 2010. I apologize for the lack of spacing, but blogger is not accepting my formatting.)
