Advent II 2007--By Suzanne Clement--United States

Advent II 2007

Sunday School Pageant
with many classes playing
parts in the story
of the birth of Jesus Christ.
I’ve been asked to read for them.

So I stand down front
at the lectern of the church
and read the account
from Isaiah 11,
foretelling the holy birth

and sit with some of
the smallest participants
before and after
they do their parts on this
Second Sunday of Advent.

Suzanne Clement is a writer from Dover, New Hampshire.
