The Three Kings
"I am Gaspar. I have brought frankincense,
and I have come here to say that life is good.
Tha God exists. That love is everything.
I know it is so because of the heavenly star."
"I am Melchior. I have brought fragrant myrrh.
Yes, God exists. He is the light of day.
The whitest flowers is rooted in the mud,
and all delights are tinged with melancholy."
"I am Balthasar. I have brought gold.
I assure you, God exists. He is great and strong.
I know it is so because of the perfect star
that shines so brightly in Death's diadem."
"Gaspar, Melchior, Balthasar: be still.
Love has triumphed, and bids you to its feast.
Christ, reborn, turns chaos into light,
and on His brows He wears the crown of life."
