The visit

After Matthew 2:1-12

The magi followed

the star in the sky,

burning bright,

a brilliance unknown



They knew the meaning,

and they followed

the light westward,

down to Jerusalem,

down to the small town

known as David’s city.


They brought gifts,

gold, frankincense,

myrrh, gifts fitting

for a king,

for it was a king

they found, a king

in baby’s form,

a child,


the child foretold.
