In Bethlehem

 
Not far from Mount Moriah
where the Father of the Faithful
built an altar of native stone,
and binding Isaac, laid him
on the fire-ready wood
of sacrifice, before he saw 
the thicket-caught ram,
 
Mary lays her first-born son, 
wrapped in swaddling bands,
on tinder-dry hay in limestone 
manger of a stable-cave.
 
Fulfilled again are words
of Abraham—
 
God will provide himself a lamb.
