runs to the window, and there afar
sees the first gleam of dawn
and the morning star.
...a woman struggling, as she grows,
feels the first birth-pangs, sure, though fearing
that through more pain to come
child-dawn is nearing.
And a world grown old in sin and blood
yearns for an answer and hopes so long
though all hopes fall to dust
hears an angel song.
