The wise men’s dilemma; a life or death

5 May 2022 | Jesus Christ | 0 comments

… were we led all that way for

Birth or death? There was a Birth certainly,

We had evidence and no doubt. I had seen birth and death,

But had thought they were different; this birth was

Hard and bitter agony for us, like Death, our death.

We returned to our places, these kingdoms,

But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation,

With an alien people clutching their gods.

I should be glad of another death.


T.S. Eliot (1888-1965).
