Wrapped Gift

Wrapped in cloths came the best gift I ever got.

Sleeping peaceful he lay
no worries or fears kept.
His mom gazes—admires
her perfect gift from God.

Against the tuff manger
of splinters, dirt, and hay
cooed quietly with peace
the wrapped gift I needed.

  2. I’m glad you enjoy reading these art posts. This poem entitled “Wrapped Gift” is special to me because it reminds me of the best gift I’ve ever received.

    The poem is modeled after an ancient text written in the first century AD by a man named Luke. He was a doctor by trade and wrote two books. The first book was written to Theophilus and the second was a record of twelve leaders living in Palestine during the first century AD.

    This poem was written based upon the second chapter of Luke’s first book written to Theophilus. Each line consists of six syllables. The first stanza discusses the birth of a baby boy in Bethlehem. The second stanza portrays the contrast of this precious baby against the backdrop of this tough world we all live in.

    Thanks again for reading this art post. Have a great Christmas.

    Kind regards,

    Matt

  3. I heard a pastor say this 2009 Christmas, “Remember the best gift we ever got came wrapped in grace.” That is a nice image, too.
