by Teresa Burleson
From the throne they come, Too many to count, Close enough to touch. The sight of them Brought us to our knees. They announced His coming As if we were fit To stand before Somebody great. But here we are, We who smell of flock and field, Kneeling before the wonder Who is Mary’s child, Who is The Ancient of Days.
