Into the Darkest Hour by Madeleine L’Engle⠀

It was a time like this,⠀
war & tumult of war,⠀
a horror in the air.⠀
Hungry yawned the abyss –⠀
and yet there came the star⠀
and the child most wonderfully there.⠀

It was a time like this⠀
of fear & lust for power,⠀
license & greed and blight –⠀
and yet the Prince of bliss came into the darkest hour⠀
in quiet & silent light.⠀

And in a time like this⠀
how celebrate his birth⠀
when all things fall apart?⠀
Ah! Wonderful it is:⠀
with no room on the earth,⠀
the stable is our heart.⠀
