On Receiving Two Granddaughters for Christmas

December 21, 1991|By Gwinn Owens

Amid the seasonal hilarities

Lurks a yearning for the verities:

Some transcendent sign that tells

More than baubles, toys and bells.

Recall, by virtue of a child,

Humanity was reconciled;

For hope comes oft upon the wings

Of infants' promissory things.

Hence, when on this solstice whirls

A pair of winsome little girls,

We are seasonally blesses

Not once but twice within our nest.

By their enchanting, bright reality

We envision immortality.
