CHRISTMAS CRIB OUTSIDE ST TERESA'S CHURCH, BELFAST


Every year, when I was a kid, St Teresa's Church, Glen Road, Belfast assembled a Nativity scene, using some pretty basic stuff. As a youngster, it was pure joy and magic to use our imaginations. As an adult, our cynicism got in the way.......


CHRISTMAS CRIB OUTSIDE ST TERESA'S CHURCH

It was the highlight of the year,
apart from toys on Christmas day,
to see the outdoor crib
where the baby Jesus lay.

Memory and maturity spoil
the wonder of it all
for the star was a bulb
and Jesus was a doll.
