Songs for Christmas, #11: “A Christmas Beam of Hope”

Duccio di Buoninsegna, The Nativity with the Prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel, 1308-1311, via the National Gallery of Art, open access

On this Christmas Eve, the world outside our fragile houses burns and freezes varyingly, inconsistently, but there is still hope.

“A Christmas Beam of Hope”

Through death and destruction,
through booming and night,
through human ignorance
and the trend to fight,
through all of our struggles
and the human plight,
comes an unwavering,
bright-shining light.
A beam of hope.
A Star.
