A Most Unlikely Place

You come to look for a king
But find a babe instead
I too come begging for bread
But hear angelic voices sing

We bow with gifts in hand
Surely the best we have
Unaware He will conquer the grave
As He fulfills His Father’s plan

dversepoets.com Tuesday, Lillian is highlighting Bjorn. Thank you. It is nice to learn about my poet community. Also ABBA, the singing group.

Write a poem that includes one line and one line only, from the lyrics of ABBA’s Dancing Queen. The line must be word for word.

The line I chose is “You come to look for a king”

I avoided it with crown, but today I will honor Christmas as the season is upon us, and ABBA (I loved Mama Mia) with the rhyme scheme Abba.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    What a perfect poem for this time of year: the true message of Christmas which seems lost in all the commercialism. We chose the same line too 🙂
