Until next year...


God is with us! Thanks so much for checking in here and soaking in a little poetry. I hope it's been enriching for your Advent season. It has certainly been for me! I may start doing this annually as it's been helpful and you've all been encouraging. Thanks to all the various poets for giving us new eyes. Grace and peace to you in these days.

Charlie -

In case these posts still find you....will you possibly consider keeping up the Advent poems blog again? I appreciate your skills as a "curator", if you will, of these poems. You certainly don't have to if you don't want to, but many of us appreciated your efforts (and especially your original work).

Hopefully you'll find your way back to this blog this year! Thanks...

At your service,

- an appreciative lurker. :)

Man it's too bad you're not writing stuff on here (since 2008). Anyways, I recently wrote a poem called "Christmas is coming"; if anyone's interested, here's the URL:

I've looked at these Advent poems every year as I plan worship for my congregation. They are a help every year. I found this poem and thought you might like it, too:

The Wicked Fairy at the Manger
My gift for the child:
No wife, kids, home;
No money sense. Unemployable.
Friends, yes. But the wrong sort -
The workshy, women, wogs,
Petty infringers of the law, persons
With notifiable diseases,
Poll tax collectors, tarts;
The bottom rung.

........His end?
I think we'll make it
Public, prolonged, painful.

Right, said the baby. That was roughly
What we had in mind.
