SING THE CHILD...



CHRISTMAS C AROL 1942

Sing of the Childhood
That renews in our eyes
Beauty grown tired.
Tonight is inspired,
Land, sea and skies
With a Childhood surprise.


Sing of the Childhood
That renews in the heart
Of the hopeless hope’s cheer;
Year after year
Giving a fresh start
Where Sin’s gaolers depart.


Sing of the Childhood
That renews for us all -
Banker or farmer
Or soldier in armour –
The laugh of the soul.

 Sing the Child in the Stall.


Patrick Kavanagh
