One of my favorite poems is The Dream of the Rood. I’ve written a piece back around Easter time based off of the poem. In similar fashion, I extrapolated the idea to the manger scene. Enjoy. I also included a disclaimer in a post due to show up tomorrow. Please read that disclaimer. I do not want you to think I am trying to add or subtract from biblical truths.
In I was the trough from which swine would dine.
Now I will be remembered as the cradle which rocked a king,
the one who saved mankind.
Holiness slept in my straw.
I was anointed with vernix and show.
Oh what an honor to hold the divine,
to witness angel choirs and wise men humbled.
Now I will swing to melodious tunes as God himself slumbers in my embrace.
I’ll rest, if even just for a moment, as I experience the hope, peace, love, and joy
this heaven sent babe has delivered unto creation.
