Concord-Dance 🎄

by Mary Harwell Sayler

When God gave us Jesus –
the One Who would save us –
Heaven could not contain itself.

Light spilled from a star,
heralding His arrival.

The earth burst into life.
Birds called for revival.

Morning Glories began
to bloom in the night chill,

and frightened 
shepherds
trembled like sheep

when angels awakened
their sleep with song 
as light as snowflakes,

as powerful as a 
Tsunami of harmony
pouring onto earth 
at Jesus’ birth.

Oh, praise Him!

From the book PRAISE! by Mary Harwell Sayler


Mary Harwell Sayler began reading the Bible and writing poems in childhood and never stopped! Eventually, she placed over 2,500 poems, prayers, articles, and children’s stories as well as books in all genres, many of which can be found on Amazon. After collecting prayers and promises from the major translations of the Bible, she paraphrased them into contemporary English, and published the Book of Bible Prayers then Kneeling on the Promises of God.  Mary also selected poems from her previously published works for A Gathering of Poems. She provides online help for poets and other communicators for Christ while remaining active on FacebookTwitterLinkedInTumblr, and, gratefully, Agape Review.
