Awaiting Our King

Advent is a time to seek
the coming of our mighty King
once born into a stable meek
while angelic choirs did sing

He will return once again
at a time we can’t predict
while the angels sing amen
to rescue hearts He has picked

He has promised light to come
and overtake the looming dark
free us from under Satan’s thumb
our magnificent, glorious Monarch

On Christmas we will celebrate
the first time He came in flesh
as in anticipation we await
His kingly steed in place of the creche

I thought I’d write a little Advent/Christmas poem today for dVerse Poets Pub Open Link Night, as we celebrate not only this holiday season and the coming of longer days, but also the release of Chiaroscuro – Darkness and Light: Voices from poets – dVerse Anthology, now available on Amazon. (Use promo code Bookgift17 for a little savings today). Two of my poems are included in this anthology, along with the poems of many other dVerse poets
