New Book of Christmas Poems

Soph has a new book of poems out. She's been writing one a year for our Christmas lessons and carols service as the last reading for seven years now and these are the six from previous years. Some are funny, some touching, but all are full of the Christmas spirit.

Excerpt: Baby Boy


Baby boy, what are you?
A king, they say?
What king lies on a bed of straw
When silk, or the finest cotton
Should cradle a royal head?

Baby boy, what are you?
A Lord, they say?
What Lord breathes stink of ass and ox
Should only perfumes of jasmine
And sweet musk suffice?

Baby boy, what are you?
Saviour, they say?
Saviour in a humble stable,
Born beneath a holy star
A child and yet a king?

Lord of Light, Peace and Joy,
You are a Saviour,
Saviour of the World.
You are a lord,
O Lord of Love.
You are a king,
King of my heart.
