What about this poem by Sara Teasdale?


"The Coin"

Into my heart's treasury
I slipped a coin
That time cannot take
Nor a thief purloin, --

Oh better than the minting
Of a gold-crowned king
Is the safe-kept memory
Of a lovely thing.

"Those Three Wise Men" by Kathryn Neff Perry was written just this year (2008). 

The sky was blackOn that eerie nightWe wondered thenWhat was that sight? There was a starThat led the wayThose three menThey stopped to pray Those Three WisemenWho came to seeA sight to shareWith you and me They each brought giftsTo share with YouThey saw a babeSo brand new.  In the manger on that nightThat tiny babeWhat a sight. How could we knowWhen we saw His faceHe’d be the oneTo change this place? We offered frankincenseAnd myrrhOn that nightNo one did stir. The northern lightThat guided themIs there untilHe comes again.Written by Kathryn Neff Perry©Copyright 2008All Rights Reserved.
