Little Precious, Sleepy Head










Three Kings from East went ahead

that very solemn night

Mary fulfilled her test.

Stars were snitchers

at best.





As the Three Wise carried gifts

of myrrhs and golds;

Little precious sleepy head

carried peace and love

to impoverished world.





How lucky were the sheep

in the manger staring in awe

of that Face I long to touch–

Little precious sleepy head,

I hope You know.








A Wake-up Call

7








As the Sun peeps below the aurora,

morning coffee is being brewed

over coal by manufacturah.

Trees sigh

what’s the matta?

Earth has fever

and they are still snoring

in pajamas.


Even before dawn

algae have abandoned the corals,

dying they too ask,

“What’s the matta?”

Deep in rem,

still no ansa.


Ahead of the rooster’s crowing,

Floods are right by the doorsteps-

not knocking–

banging!


Polar bears without the glaciers, the ices,

keep wandering wondering–

saying “endless summer

is not a good thing.”


Salmons may not be there

for them, and them

for ages–

sniff sniffing:

CO who?

Is such a,

such a

bad thing.


Earth’s fever is not going

down nor leaving–

and men are still buried

in blankets,

still sleeping

while the house is burning.
