the nativity quotes

My father compounded with my mother under the Dragon's tail, and my nativity was under Ursa Major, so that it follows, I am rough ...
We saw Thee in Thy balmy nest,
Young Dawn of our Eternal Day!
But he her fears to cease
Sent down the meek-eyed Peace;
And then at last our bliss
Full and perfect is,
See how from far upon the eastern road
The star-led Wizards haste with odours sweet . . .
Ring out, ye crystal spheres,
Once bless our human ears
This is the month, and this the happy morn,
Wherein the Son of heav'n's eternal King,
And though the shady gloom
Had given day her room,
But see, the Virgin blest
Hath laid her Babe to rest:
The time is out of joint--O cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!
