Three Kings

The Wise Men
Seeing that star,
The Wise Men, swift
To bow to the Boy,
Gave Him their gits. 
Their gift was gold,
And the bent knee,
Hard metal and
Humanity.
 
Now He, the Son
Of Joseph’s wife,
Gives them His gift:
Immortal life. 
This is the hope
Of a world gone wild:
When proud men kneel
To a little Child.
