A King for All

Frederic Leighton - The Star of Bethlehem

star watching,
studying the changes in the night sky.
There are prophecies
of those who speak of gods,
those who speak of covenants
between children
and their creator.

They say,
He is coming
to dwell.
And those gazing at stars
know this
by the knowledge in their minds,
not necessarily their hearts.

Let us journey far,
beneath the night's sky,
find the place
where the one star rests,
a guide
for the wise among men
who seek simplicity.

Let us bring gifts,
for He is what they say.
He is the answer
sought by life.
The one born
as a light in the darkness.
A king for all
who will come to Him.
