A STAR HAS APPEARED IN THE NIGHT SKY...

A star had appeared in the night sky,
And it beckoned them to a land far away!
Excitedly the men packed for a journey
And eagerly they set out one day!

Bearing gifts for a king they would honour,
They rode on camels day and night.
Their eager anticipation,
Put any thoughts of dallying to flight!

They called at a rich king's palace,
Thinking that he'd be aware of this royal birth!
He'd eagerly wanted to know all about it,
But... there was something false about his zeal and mirth!

A warning in a dream clinched their decision,
They'd go home by a different way...
For jealousy ruled the king's dark heart -
At least that's what the angel in the dream did say!

They entered a humble home in a village,
Where a toddler was at play!
A simple home, housing the Father and a very young Mother,
"Welcome sirs!" She shyly did say!

"We bring gifts for The Child that you carried,
 Gifts of frankincence, myrrh and gold!
 Our homage to pay to this Princling...
 Who has A Destiny beyond all others we've been told!"

They played with The Boy for a season,
As He toddled around His Home.
Then... with a sigh and sincere best wishes,
They got on their camels and went another way home!
