a virgin did come

by bly wallentine

a virgin did come from lowliest home and shelter she fain in a manger would find for full was the inn and no room was within save where to the stalls the mute oxen they'd bind o, how wondrous the love and the deep humility of him who was laid in a manger for me that babe was a king, mystic gifts lo they bring sure tokens they were of some great one to be to bethlehem led, eastern sages have sped from afar, the desire of all nations to see no tokens of state around that royal babe did wait seeming least and yet greatest of all monarchs was he
winter takes the sting out of me trims my claws and files down my teeth you thought that i don't give up easily but i've always given up easily in the end we're all tired as hell cursing god and taking our pills and in the end we'll give up easily we've always given up easily it's so hard to not let go it's so hard, i know
tether my feeble arms should i fail though from my pain i hide, yet i feel lord of the trodden vine, will i shatter? even in mildest winds do i shudder
