A theological poem using the rhyme scheme known as anapaestic tetrameter found in Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Twas before the beginning when God formed a plan
to create heavens and earth and even a man.
Before earth’s big debut, there was a prior start.
The angels were created and given a part.
Praising the Ancient One in His glorious light.
The winged creatures serve Him all day, there’s never night.
But wait. How can we know the order of these things?
Can angels rejoice before they’re made by the King?
For eternity has no before or after.
It’s one endless now without former or latter.
Now, if time is the space that’s between two events,
then to order them ask: when did the clock commence?
Before earth and sky are spoken into being,
what else can give things chronological meaning?
Let’s go back to the start before our inception
when angels were pure and were without deception.
