Consider the poem “Steep Descent” by Joy Lenton from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“Watch, wait, wonder
and ponder anew
the steep descent
of Love breaking through
to our humanity,
bringing light, hope
and clarity to see
how much Father God
desires to be reunited
with you and me.”
