Wise beards

Three men arrived with wise beards.
But after they had reached the place

Journey seemed long and pointless,
From their palaces with sherbet girls.

A cold coming they had of it this far.
Was it necessary to journey so long?

It took hard persuasion to continue,
When wracked by unending doubts.

The men are finally here to discover.
But their beards shook with doubts.

(reading T. S. Eliot’s poem Journey of the Magi)
