The Nativity Evolving by Raymond A. Foss

Over the days, the journey of Advent
the nativity evolving,
the scene coming into focus
beginning with the couple, expectant
alone, in the rented stable
away from family, from home
waiting, under his star, for a son,
foretold by angels, by prophets
Shepherds watching their sheep, expectant
on guard for predators, for robbers
awake for trouble, called by herald angels
to the babe newborn in the manger.
Wise men, long before his birthing,
following a star, in the west,
leading them and their gifts
to his lowly bed.
All of us, through the ages
drawn to the bed of the newborn king
our savior come into the world
to set us free.
