Christmas poems from the nine lessons of a carol service
In this series, I wrote poems inspired by each of the Bible readings from a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. Browse the full series here.
The popular poems in the series are these two:
Do not linger at the cost, Seek the one who seeks the lost.
There is no quiet, No sense of peace, No sight to guide, No knowledge to lead.

The wives of the magi discuss the men’s departure and the wisdom of their quest. A thoughtful sketch about commercialisation, the injustice of patriarchy, and how Jesus’ kingship truly is different.
