Hassle, bustle,
Parcel-tussle,
Whopping shopping,
Present swapping,
Baking, caking,
Mince-pie-making,
Posting, hosting,
Turkey-roasting,
Greeting, treating,
Over-eating,
Lunching, munching,
Telly-hunching,
Drowsing, dozing,
Eyelids closing ...

Now the dreaming:
Stars all gleaming,
Angels singing,
Gospel-bringing,
Baby-crying,
Manger-lying,
God descending
All-befriending,
Intervening
That's the meaning
Shepherds quaking,
Sheep forsaking
For us, like them,
The time for waking.
