NEW poem- "bright star"

This poem is a Christmas poem, after the style of "little tree" by e. e. cummings. Jesus is like a bright star at the top of a tree (the cross,) like "illuminated leaf," or spiritual manuscripts in an ancient book-  atop a tree that is heavy with dusty chains (the filth of our sins,) surrounded by broken ornaments (the mistakes we commit throughout the year.) God willing, this new year will be a second chance.

Oh, and the poem is in the half-shape of the star of David, not just any star... Christmas is about one specific Personage. So yeah. Enjoy. :)

bright

  glow-
      ing
        in
         the
          gloom of a December night, who plucked
             you out of the
                                                    somber sea
                           of this year’s broken
                       ornaments?
                                you
                                    are
                                       the
                                          only
                                               candle
     in the cold peppermint frost
          of this
         grey
         house,
         illu
        min
        ated
       leaf
      crown
      ing
     a tree
    heavy
    with
   dusty
   pa
  per
