A Christmas meditation

Note: Below the poem is an audio clip of the author reading the poem.

A silent night, a smallish town,
A family here just for the count,
no consequential business meet
or international retreat,
an unimpressive stable stall,
a tiny baby — that was all.
A modest gift from God to us
and hardly worth a stir or fuss.
