The Shepherds’ Story


Shepherds, an echo
from the angel’s startling words
makes you sore afraid.
Shepherds in the field,
all your hardship ends this night
with the angels’ song.
Shepherds from the field,
enter the stable softly,
falling on your knees.

A fuller version of this story can be found in Luke 2:1-20
