At Seven on the Seventh


{Fifty cards ... went out today
Some have been acknowledged ...
But most were lost - in the fray)

It's a celebration in the Eastern church
When the Russians, and others, on altars, perch
Two weeks after the commercial Christmas-time
Praying to the Lord, and thanking HIM, sublime

Regardless of the date we celebrate Christ's birth
There's much to be revered on this day of mirth
For our praise of the Christ child is never suspect
Acknowledging a miracle ... keeps us in check

- Tristram
