Burning

Long ago and far away
  the stars sang to the night
Calling any who woukd listen
  to the sacred song to follow
Created in the depths of hope
  singing of a new creation
A babe in simplicity hidden
  amongst the animals
New and yet such an old soul
  such a fragile beginning
Entrusted to our care
  can we feel the weight
Love's song bestowed to us
  to care for the broken world
With the simplest of gifts
  the hard part is seeing it
