Songs for Christmas, #5: “Christmas Sleet and Snow”

George Elbert Burr, First Snow (No. 1), 1914, via the National Gallery of Art, open access

“Christmas Sleet and Snow”
One poem made up of six cinquain

Cold sleet
falling down on
a lone rooftop nestled
in the hills. That is the place I
call home.

Is this
where God wants me
to stay and do my part?
I ask, and the answer is, “Yes.
It is.”

Who knew
life held so much
trouble, sorrow, despair?
One knew, and conquered all of these:
Jesus.

The night
darkens every
day, but one night fell
darker yet: At the sacrifice of
our Lord.

Christmas,
Jerusalem,
a bursting forth of life,
direct light of a distant star:
A Child.

Snowflakes
falling down on
a lone rooftop nestled
in the hills. That is the place I
call home.
