Each Year Again the Gifts Are Given Gladly
Music: The Huron Carol (Jesous Ahatonhia).
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Each year again the gifts are given gladly,
Perhaps because one wants to be a gift.
In goods there can be good, yet sometimes, sadly,
People get the thing but not the drift.
How could the wise men come without a token,
A gift to give the child, new born a king?
Nor could their words speak as their gifts had spoken,
Yielding love incarnate in a thing.
