Mary and Joseph

On this momentous day, Jesus Christ was born
I appeal to my mates in batch to write  an ode or song
Expressing the joy befell on earth on this special day
Who knows that will spur to batch 64 a poet to be born
Ariya De Silva


A Christmas thought – Hail Mary

Nazareth was an angry city in turmoil, gone very wild
Many fleeing & among them was  Mary, a virgin child
Joseph pulled the cart wearily on a rough uneven road
Donkey wearily carried the precious luggage, our gift from God

Mary did not seek any comforts, all she cared was the safety of her baby
Murmuring to Lord Jesus any mother would to pacify her precious  sonny
No comfortable bed none to attend to needs,  but no pain caused by Lord
Mary  helped to make a king, first time in the world without using a sword

  3. Yes my dear friend and one of the sounding boards
    You and Praxy share responsibly for my poetic works
    Every time a new idea came or a poem was written
    I have two erudite, reliable mates to help to refashion

    So day by day ideas came I wrote some rubbish
    They got read, sorted and given a coat of polish
    My two buddies, Deepthie & Praxy letting them shine
    I get plenty of accolades for having two friends divine


  4. Please allow me to insert the quote
    by Pope Pius IX in Ineffabilis Deus. He wrote,

    “The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin.”
