The Wise Man From the East
He came with a little bell tied to his waist,
His eyes all aglow like stars.
His lips told the story of a wondrous place,
So close, yet very far.
The children gathered round to hear his tale,
And feel the magic in the air.
He told them of the many wondrous things
In his world beyond compare.
And his face was filled with sunshine
As he spoke of joy and peace.
And his robe glowed like a rainbow,
The wise man from the East.
He spoke of many treasures to be found
In his land so very far away,
Where dancing sunbeams kiss the mountain tops
And cheerful blue jays play.
Then he turned his laughing eyes unto the sun,
And joyously he raised his arms.
The waves of light and love were felt by all,
And safety from all harm.
We asked the gentle man if we could go
With him to his magic world of light.
He laughed, then said to watch the Great White Star
Yon in the Eastern sky.
Then he smiled and bid goodbye to everyone
And we knew that he would never return.
But if we set our sights on his fair land
The way there we would learn.
