Advent Poems (Dec 12th) - Advent Songs

Advent poems and advent songs
Advent rights and advent wrongs
Losing patience, gaining strength
Holding now and then at length

We pause and as we rest we toil
Bringing silence to the boil
Longing still to be connected
To something more than we expected

Making noise and celebration
In active anticipation
Working hard in quiet reflection
Waiting for divine detection

Our spirits lift and we’re aware
For what it is we must prepare
And while we wait, we scrape along
Singing joyful advent songs
