The “Castle Rock” Poem
Castle Rock Chamber’s Starlighting tradition is the reading of the “Castle Rock” poem. Amid this year’s changes, consider reading this aloud to your family.
By resident Helen Lowrie Marshall Wri en in 1966
Long years ago in Bethlehem
A star shone brilliant bright
Above the place where Christ was born On that  rst Christmas night.
And Wisemen, following its gleam Came traveling from afar
To see the miracle that lay Beneath that glorious Star
Tonight we light our Christmas star In memory of that birth Proclaiming to the world our wish For PEACE, goodwill on Earth
A beacon light whose beams reach out To lift the hearts of men,
That they may sense the wonder
Of His coming again
That travelers by earth and sky
Who journey through the night
May feel the warmth and peace and cheer Re ected in its light
For now, as then, the star proclaims A miracle sublime
The miracle of love reborn
Each blessed Christmastime
And, as the Star of Bethlehem Declared the Savior’s birth
May this, the Star of Castle Rock, Shine forth for PEACE on Earth
