A Christmas Villanelle

They say, one time, eternity took form.
The story’s told again this time each year –
a tale which, in December, keeps us warm.

Amidst a world that’s often uniform,
can my uniqueness be belov’d and dear?
They say, one time, eternity took form.

Society compels us to conform,
yet each of us has quirks that make us queer,
a tale which, in December, keeps us warm.

Our difference makes us separate from the norm,
yet in our incarnation, God is near.
They say, one time, eternity took form.

Connection holds the power to transform,
unveiling mystery that makes things clear –
a tale which, in December, keeps us warm.

Together, we can overcome this storm.
United, we can conquer pain and fear.
They say, one time, eternity took form,
a tale which, in December, keeps us warm.
