Christmas Eve....

                                            CHRISTMAS EVE

                                 The door is on the latch tonight,

                                    The hearth fire is aglow;

                                 I seem to hear soft passing feet -

                                     The Christ Child in the snow.

                                My heart is open wide tonight,

                                     For stranger, kith, or kin;

                                I would not bar a single door

                                     Where love might enter in.
