unto us

unto us a child is born
unto us a child is given
and the government shall be on his shoulder;
and his name shall be called
 wonderful, counsellor, mighty god, 
everlasting father, 
prince of peace


wishing you a happy christmas
eating well, talking kindly,
making merry, thoughtfully
unwrapping and savouring
the best gifts in life -
love, kinship, peace.
