Let us bring gifts

A child is born,

In poverty,

In a busy city,

On the edge of society,

Amongst strangers,

Far from home,

in Syria, South Sudan,

in Brazil.


New parents

dream, dreams

of schools,

of medicines,

of food,

of a better future.


Let us bring gifts

of compassion, solidarity and justice.
