Genealogy

Bruce Dawe

Before that Birth were earlier births
That each, in turn, led on
To that for which the world was meant
To bow in unison...

For, as in every family,
The past is present still,
And looks on family happenings
Hoping they will fulfil
Every father's expectation
To know that among his heirs,
He may be entertaining
An angel unawares.

So, too, with God the hope was born
That in Jesus' birth we'd see
The ultimate pledge of parenthood:
One holy family
Which would in time reach out beyond
The Bethlehem of His birth
Until its genealogy
Circumscribed the earth...
