Red bakes velvet
Berries burst crimson
Bows tied ruby
Birds feed scarlet, tipping by the window ledge
Lights flicker scarlet, winking at the wonder of it all
Christ’s blood shed, sacrifice,
life poured out
But first the manger, birth and life
Waiting watchful vigilant we
For the coming of Christ the King
Red the beating hearts of we
Celebrating ,glorious triumphant birth,
a Baby, Savior
The King, draped in robe of Royalty.
And all the world awaits his birth
While dressed in fabric festive, crimson
And all the words written, captured, printed holy,
All the words as gift for us, holy, holy ,holy they are, there
Joining Deidra for her Sunday Community…what JOY!
