Poetry Thursday X

"People, Look East" (Advent carol)

People look East, the time is near!
Of the crowning of the year
Make your house fair as you are able
Trim the hearth and set the table. 
People look East, and sing today.
Love the Guest is on the way.

Furrows be glad, though Earth is bare
One more seed is planted there
Give us the strength the seed to nourish
That in the course the flower may flourish
People look East, and sing today. 
Love the Rose is on the way!
