Advent, the season for preparation for the birth of Christ...

The best thing about this poem is that it says, "Mary says 'yes' to the Lord." I like that very much, it is so wonderful. "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,/ my spirit rejoices in God my Savior." That from "The Song of Mary" also called, "Magnificat." I know my poem doesn't compare to it, yet I join my voice with others in proclaiming the wonder.

What song we Hear, what Peace...

by Peter Menkin

Angels are a light to the eye,

offering clarity of the night, bringing

joy in message and presence

of the morning through day;

this season again what song, what peace~ Mary

who says yes to the Lord.

Was it dark, the darkness of the hidden life,

among the secrets of the darkness of night,

when Mary said yes to the Lord?

It seemed she was so alone, young, but a girl.

Innocent. In the darkness of the world,

in the time of man's darkness for lack of God.

Turning away from Him,

lost in man's history.

When Mary said yes to the Lord.

The Angel brought light,

to Mary, to mankind in a darkness of faith,

adrift in the history of man's making.

When Mary said yes to the Lord.
