On the Tenth Day of Advent: Long, Long Ago

ANON has written many exquisite poems.  Here's one of my favorites, taken from "The Family Read-Aloud CHRISTMAS TREASURY" (Alice Low and Marc Brown)

Winds through the olive trees
Softly did blow,
Round little Bethlehem
Long, Long ago.

Sheep on the hillside lay
Whiter than snow;
Shepherds were watching them,
Long, long ago.

Then from the happy sky,
Angels bent low,
Singing their songs of joy,
Long, Long ago.

For in a manger bed,
Cradled we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem,
Long, Long ago.
