Winter Version of Morning has Broken (Bunessan)

(Hold on to this for six month friends in the southern hemisphere)

Morning has woken, like the first morning,
Icicles broken, sparkle and shine.
Bulbs’ deep creation, bears’ hibernation –
Pauses our rushing, blesses our time.

Sweet the snow’s new fall, under Orion,
laughter with snowball, angels spread wide,
Praise for the waiting for hidden wonder.
Praise for compassion to shelter inside.

Mine is the firelight of friendship treasured,
mine is the pleasure of book read, phone call.
Praise for the welcome to every cold one,
Praise for the welcome, God’s children all.
