Twelfth Day Rispetto

[I wrote this poem pretty quickly in response to yesterday’s prompt from Two Sylvia’s Press.]

We await their coming each year
Those three old men of wise repute
who traveled far to come near
with Herod’s wrath in close pursuit.

What strange star guided their far search?
What star still guides our belief?
To find God far from any known church
Seek a baby for sin’s relief.
