In the littleness of Mary

underneath the darkness

God is born

Herod searches the innocents

the disciples escape

shepherds come

Magi come

In Bethlehem

underneath the evil

the fury of rejection

is stopped

It only exalts

the King of the Universe

above the earth

In the meekness of Mary

God is born

Who is ready to accept him

except donkeys and oxen?
