Epiphany 2013

The magi brought the strangest gifts -
Gold, frankincense and myrrh;
But what was for the boy? Too bad
That Matthew turns, demurs,
And leaves it up to us to guess
What other gifts they gave;
I like to think a ball!  So thus
His mother, strong and brave,
Might think ahead to days of play
Out in some Naz'reth street;
Or maybe they went wild, and when
They chanced this boy to meet,
They gave a kite! Yes! One he'd fly
Up to the atmosphere;
And see the cross upon it made
To give the whole world cheer.
