Richard Bott has written three poems,

Christus Natus est... secundus
Christus Natus est...tertius
Christus natus est...quartus

though I had to punch Christus Natus est into google to before it dawned on me what was going on. Yup I can be dense.

I love the ambiguity of the male character in the secundus poem. Is he a preditor or protector? From this perspective we just don't know. Thought provoking and beautiful, well worth a read.
