One more sonnet  

Posted by Agnes Regina in

The poet returns! This one was inspired by the awesome winter sunsets, all pink and purple and gold... what else would a Catholic think of but the liturgical colors? :)

How glorious is the sky, though chill the air!
A liturgy celestial I behold;
A heavy curtain, violet, rose and gold,
Is draped across the towering branches bare.

Darkness is setting in; we must beware,
For in the dark of midnight and the cold
Our evil enemy, our foe of old,
Roams round and round, to see whom he may snare....

But we who love Our Lord will not fear night;
In blackest dark, we better see the light
That sprang from a poor stable's lowly stall,
And turned the night of fear to one of joy:
The Babe is born that will all sin destroy,
And be the loving Savior of us all!

Very beautiful. Do you like sunsets or sunrises better? Why?

Oh, so hard to say! I see sunrises very seldom (heehee...) But I think I like them quite as much as sunsets, if not more, because they are the promise of a new day: "O Oriens..."
