Angels We Have Heard On High
by Barbara Lynn Terry
It happened one Christmas eve,
His name I could not even conceive,
As he told me not to worry or stress,
But just be and do my best.
I heard the words so softly spoken,
As I searched for my bus token.
After I had paid the fare,
I looked around, but he was not there.
I thought that I had imagined it all,
And smiled as the snow began to fall.
It glistened in the lights of the street,
As I sat there glad to be off my feet.
Then as I walked home from the stop,
I heard him again, and my purse did drop
At the sound of the voice's host,
That was so very close.
I looked around, but no one was there.
And again I thought that where,
Is this voice coming from so clear,
That is from no one but yet so near?
But I was startled, and could not conceive,
As this happened one Christmas eve.

|It says in the Bible that we will entertain Angels here on earth - I really believe that & so does Barbara Terry. My husband had an Angel experience years ago as a long haul trucker. I think this poem that Barbara wrote is very well written & is true to life experience. Good job, Barbara.|

|This is one of the carols that the choir to which I belong is going to sing tomorrow evening and on Sunday as well. I don't think I'd still be around if it were not for angels. Thank you for sharing these precious sentiments, Barbie. Love and peace to you,

|Bravo bravo Barbie doll, this is one of your very finest poems to date and one that should definately be submitted to mags and other places for publication. It is so full of hope and inspiration but with a simplicity that all can relate to who are feeling the pressures of this world. Lovely indeed.
