BTW, according to Birdie, today is Official Blog DeLurking Day. So if you never leave a comment, please delurk! I'm off to delurk, myself now.
When I held my newborn babies
Close against my heart
Soft, warm and fragrant,
I thought of Mary ----
------holding the newborn Christ Child
Close to her heart
The drifts of incense offered upon
All the altars of the world
Cannot smell as sweet
As the warm breath of the Christ Child,
The ruah of this
-----against his mother's cheek.
