Consider this poem by Ana Lisa de Jong from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“Christmas is for a moment
the veil lifted,
the light of Christ appearing
through the mist.

The bright glow
of a candle briefly lit,
that for a time
illuminates the room.

As a lover’s knock upon the door
causes the heart to lift,
so Christmas is the long awaited visit
to which we open our arms.”
