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
   O’ershadowing afar
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 maiden’s womb,
   The Son of God is born.

The Poetry of Father Tabb (1928) p. 198
