Poems by Robert Hawkins

The Road to Bethlehem
Beginning in 1980, I wrote 25 Christmas poems over the course of the next 27 years. It was my (nearly) annual tradition. Then, I stopped! Twelve years later, after being VERY convicted for ignoring God's gift to me, this was my Christmas poem for 2017.
