Keeping Watch at Night

It had been a
     in the deep
     dark silence

Not a word
     not a song
     not a glimmer
     of light in
     the east or
     anywhere else

And there
     they were.
     just doing what
          was expected
     keeping watch
          at night.

In a moment
     the silent darkness
     simply ended
          the sky itself
               with wonder
               with good news
               of a great joy!

     New song
     flooding out
          from silence
     Light shattering
          the deep dark

And to whom
     was unexpected song sung
     did longed for light come?

     To those
     keeping watch
     at night
          as expected.
