Fulfillment

The star climbs the night,poises angelic haloabove Bethlehem.After their trek, shepherdssit quietly.The babe sleepsin his dozing mother's arms.Joseph lies backin a pile of straw,finally at ease.A dappled cow placidly chews cud,a lamb folds spindly legsunder his peaceful belly.A spiderin her cornerscurries back and forth to weaveenough glistening webto prism the sun's first rays.Suddenly now a rooster crows.The earth springs awaketoachanged world.
