The least is the greatest: Geoffrey Baskett

A poem written for Christmas 2008

Said the Camel to the Donkey as they stood beside the stall,
‘A King chose me, so I must be
More honoured than us all.’

Said the Donkey to the Camel as they stood beside the stall,
‘The mother thanked me, I must be
More Blessed than us all.’

Said the white Lamb to the others as they stood beside the stall,
‘The Baby held me, I must be
More joyful than us all.’

Called the bright Star to the speakers as they stood beside the stall,
‘I knew God’s plan, so I must be
More trusted than us all.’

Said an Angel who just drifted down to stand beside the stall,
‘That baby Child is God’s own Son,
The Creator of us all.’
