The straws of the manger is a beautiful Christmas poem about the birth of the child Jesus in the manger.

Written by Lope de VegaAt the end of the 16th century, in the middle of the Spanish Golden Age, this poem tells us about the sad part of the birth of Jesus, since its cruel end overshadows his birth.

Although its theme is not as happy as we would like at Christmas, invites the child to reflect about the true meaning of Christmas.

The straws of the manger

child of Bethlehem

today are flowers and roses,

tomorrow they will be gall.

You cry between straws,

how cold you are,

my beautiful child,

and from hot as well.

Sleep mutton holy;

my life, don't cry;

that if the wolf listens to you,

it will come for you, my good.

Sleep between straws

that, although you see them cold,

today are flowers and roses,

tomorrow they will be gall.

The ones that to keep warm

they look so soft today,

will be tomorrow thorns

in cruel crown.

But I don't want to tell you

although you know it,

words of regret

in days of pleasure;

that although so great debts

you collect them in straws,

today are flowers and roses,

tomorrow they will be gall.

Leave in tender weeping,

divine Emmanuel;

what pearls between straws

they get lost without why.

Do not think your mother

that already Jerusalem

anticipate their pains

and cries with Jose;

that although straws are not

crown for king,

today are flowers and roses,

tomorrow they will be gall.
