The World’s Danger

I saw a stable low and very bare
A little child in a manger
The oxen knew him, had him in their care
To men he was a stranger.
The safety of the world was lying there
And the world’s danger.
— Mary Coleridge

    I would I had in my best partFit rooms for Thee! or that my heart Were so clean as Thy manger was!But I am all filth, and obscene:Yet, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make clean.Sweet Jesu! will then. Let no moreThis leper haunt and soil thy door! Cure him, ease him, O release him!And let once more, by mystic birth,The Lord of life be born in earth.”
