My father played the melodeonA
Outside at our gateB
There were stars in the morning eastC
And they danced to his musicD
-
Across the world bogs his melodeon calledE
To Lennons and CallansF
As I pulled on my trousers in a hurryG
I knew some strange thing had happenedH
-
Outside in the cow house my motherI
Made the music of milkingJ
The light of the stable lamp was a starK
And the frost of Bethlehem made it twinkleL
-
A water hen screeched in the bogM
Mass going feetN
Crunched the wafer ice on the polt holesF
Somebody wistfully twisted a bellow's wheelO
-
My child poet picked out the lettersF
On Time's black stoneA
In silver the wonder of a Christmas townlandN
The winking glitter of a frosty dawnA
-
Cassiopea was overI
Cassidy's hanging hillP
I looked and three whin bushes rode acossF
The horizon the Three Wise KingsF
-
My father played the melodeonA
My mother milked the cowsF
And I had a prayer like a white rose pinnedN
On the Virgin Mary's blouseF
