The Christ-Child

The Christ-child toddles, totters

falls, grasps at handfuls of dirt,

tastes all things, feels each new thing new,

(How tiny the hands of the Maker)

babbler, blabber, downfall of Babylon,

nap-time Christ, belly down to blanket,

snoring his holy snoring, hungry

with holy hunger, overturning his toy bins,

giggler, grabber, wonder-eyes

wandering off leaving Mary to wonder where,

grubby fingers, chubby belly, gap-toothed grinner,

God in the flesh, God with soft hair,

The good God at play.
