Raymond A. Foss Poems

Mary and Joseph by Raymond A. Foss

The chosen pair, to be the parents
alone, in his ancestral home
journeying to Bethlehem
coming to this place, to the manger bed
the stable, all that was available
alone in that place, man and woman
Waiting, as we wait, them for his birth
we for his return, waiting expectantly
for the unknown future, prophesized
but as yet unknown, mysterious,
by faith alone prepared
on watch, awake, on guard
for the coming of the king
his parents, his disciples
all the people of the earth

November 30, 2008
Isaiah 64:1-9
Mark 13:24-37
and sermon, “Anticipation”
