Christmas Eve: Sunset
By Father John Banister Tabb, 1902.
Once more upon the western skies
The flaming sword appears,
And Eve again from paradise
Departs in twilight tears.
A backward look, a memory
A promise, of her progeny
The sole remaining star;
And dreams that waken in the gloom
The glory of a morn
When, mothered in a maidens womb,
The Son of God is born.
The Poetry of Father Tabb (1928) p. 198
