the seed of the woman, written by Toni L.A. Cross 11/30/09



earthy smells

of sheep and hay

the woman moans

he continues to pray


there is no bed

on which to lay

in this craggy den

at the end of the day


the night is hazy

but a star lights the way

as angels bear tidings

and shepherds obey

songs of highest praise

a lonely lamb hears


the baby comes forth

amid blood and tears

the seed of the woman

awakens the serpent’s fears

the moment of eternity

awaited for years

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
