Christmas Carol 2; Suns and Moons

This is my first idea for a Christmas carol for the school children Shean teaches. He wants two.

As I have remarked before, it is not easy to write a new Christmas carol.

Well, at least this is cheerful! Will read it to Jools, and see what he thinks.

 

Apologies to everyone who is still trying to get to grips with May.

 

Suns and moons and

stars are dancing,

waltzing in the sky.

Birds and songs and

hopes and wishes

flying round on high!

 

Hear the loud bells!

Hear the carols!

Sing the glory!

Sing the joy!

 

He is born

this Christmas morning!

Mary’s little boy!

 

Deer are running

in the forest

Hares leap for

the moon!

Tigers twirling,

Hippos whirling!

Crickets

strum the tune!

 

Hear the loud bells!

Hear the carols!

Sing the glory!

Sing the joy!

He is born

this Christmas morning!

Mary’s little boy!

 

Under earth the

worms are turning

Twisting with

the beat!

Moles step out in

velvet waistcoats

Underneath

our feet

 

Hear the loud bells!

Hear the carols!

Sing the glory!

Sing the joy!

He is born

this Christmas morning!

Mary’s little boy!

 

All creation

joins the shout of

Universal joy!

 

He is born

this Christmas morning!

Mary’s little boy!
