Pondered In Her Heart

But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

Luke 2:19 (NASB) 


But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart - Alice Havers

They have come 
from out of the darkness,
men of the fields,
those who were watching 
their cattle
and sheep.
They share a story,
some saw angels,
some saw lights.
They all heard the song,
a melody composed 
at the throne of God.

Mary knows
and has no doubt,
for an angel had come to her,
God's herald,
Gabriel.

They have come 
out from their monotonous stupor,
men of simplicity,
those who were bored of days
and nights.
The angels gave them joy,
excitement never before felt.
They have come looking to rejoice,
celebrating the greatness
of a song sung on high.

And Mary ponders
in her heart
the rantings of unscholared men,
singing praises
for her newborn child.
