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.
