Carol Elizabeth Lemon Allen
During the night - velvet, dark and quiet,
Beyond the river - silver, soft and deep,
Above the trees - standing still and silent,
In the sky - hushed and asleep,
APPEARED A STAR.
With a promise - bright and shining,
For a world wrapped in fear,
Into a moment shot with silver,
To a place so far, yet near,
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to all!
