On the Eve of Advent

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)

On the eve of Advent Jupiter ascends
As is his custom at dusk this time of year
Then Mars and the company of Orion
And all the dutiful stars awake, arise

To mark the passing of Ordinary Time
And arc into the west and disappear
Late leaves rustle unseen in the deepening dark
We whisper our Compline prayers along with them

And in the absence of light await the Light
Which will appear in the most unlikely places
