Respite Wednesday

What Christina knew . . .


What can I give him,
Poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd,
I would bring a lamb;

If I were a wise man,
I would do my part;

Yet what I can I give him—Give my heart.

~~ Christina G. Rossetti ~~
English Poet (1830 – 1894)

Love came down at Christmas;

Love all lovely,
Love divine;

Love was born at Christmas,

Stars and angels gave the sign.

~~ Christina G. Rossetti ~~
English Poet (1830 – 1894)
