Christmas Starflake and Poem, 2014, card
Topic: Seasonal/Holiday

A Christmas Poem

Let us for a Babe seek

Further within than a star 

and beyond,

And with such a strong bond,

That of this light we sing,

To celebrate a birth

That forevermore will ring

Round a wondrous earth,

And to us all speak.


Let forth the spark burst

To answer that thirst,

And forever shine light

Through darkest night.

Christmas Angel - Poem and Card, 2013
Topic: Seasonal/Holiday
Angel with Lyre ink drawing by Catinka Knoth

An Angel's Song

The Angel plays its song,
The Music moves along.
Not a note or beat is wrong,
So All may know that they belong.

There is no special Word,
Like each branch that holds a bird
From which those wings have whirred,
And every One will soon have heard.

The Music forever does resound
As it plays entwining along the ground,
Sending blessings the whole World round
To ensure that All be found.

Catinka Knoth 12/23/13
