PREPARE YE

PREPARE YE


Strangely a voice taken by the wilderness


Carries through wind in supple willingness


Through tree branches and sand dunes


Air and sky lend ear to message strewn


 


There is a visitor and he who is coming


With his arrival will we be succumbing


To seducer friend intruder guest or cheat


Do we win him a feast of happy receipt


 


Preparation observes to itself a season


Rain or months brittle Dry lend reason


Nuances of hope become ready corners


Hearts of dust and grime let to scourers


 


A boy in a manger to whom knees bend


Offerings of health wealth and praise spend
