Star of Hope
Sparkle, sparkle, heav’nly gem,
Lead the wise to Bethlehem.
For their journey from afar,
You will be their guiding star.
Lead them onward to the west:
So they may be truly blessed,
As they offer gifts they bring
To the newborn infant King.
Star of hope: from heav’n a sign,
Lead them to the Child divine!

Monty says: I’d been trying on and off to produce a new Christmas poem since the “star” prompt (#35). Along came #49 “Christmas” and suddenly time was running out, but at last #50 “Sparkle” (cf.”twinkle”) got me going, with the above result.
