Poem: “January’s Song” by Ann Weems

There is a rumor on the streets that Christmas is over.
Lights and ornaments are packed away, trees dragged to the curb,
people back to business as usual.
We’re no longer in the party mood; the humbug is back in vogue.

This is January … How can Christmas be over?!
The Child is just newborn, the song of Peace and Goodwill still rings in our ears.
The shepherds and sages still kneel to this One who is born to us … just born to us!

How can Christmas be over?? The story of the gospel is just beginning.
We who saw the Star now live in its Light. We who saw and heard now believe.

Christmas is not over. We’re just beginning to follow this One who calls
us now to Live in the Light of Love.
Christmas is not over. It’s just beginning and this is January’s song.
