Tonight is the Holy Night

Holy Night – Triolet

Tonight is the Holy Night
Christ the Saviour born unto us
Blessed is the holy sight
Tonight is the Holy Night
To save our souls he’ll always fight
His healing Love a sacred gift to us
Tonight is the Holy Night
Christ the Saviour born unto us

I wrote this poem two years ago and posted it with a photo of the Nativity scene I took in our local shopping centre. This time I chose a photo my mother kept framed in a silver frame on her bedside table. It is a postcard she got from my father before I was born and is one of the many postcards he collected when he was in Italy. This one is from the Galleria Pitti in Florence: Madonna della Seggiola by Raphael.

Wishing you joy at Christmas and may peace and goodwill be with you all through the coming year. ❤
