Did They Rush?

Did They Rush?

Did they rush?
Did they hurry home,
those wise men?
Or did they take their time?

Did they savor
every moment,
find delight
in every step,

sing songs
of glory
at each
sunrise;

and serenade
the stars
with soft hymns
of gratitude?

Did time now seem
sufficient;
everlasting
and limitless,

or did they fly
across the sands,
rarely pausing,
as they raced toward the east

hurrying
as if the News
might slip through their fingers
like a precious ointment?
