Journey of the Magi


The Journey of the Magi (fragment), ca. 1435
Sassetta (Stefano di Giovanni) (Italian, Sienese, active by 1423, died 1450)
Tempera and gold on wood / The Metropolitan Museum of Art


My friend Rupert Walters sent me the following link this morning, and I hereby purloin his kindness and pass it on. What a very good poem this is, and well recited, too. Verse trivia: Dylan Thomas used to call Eliot "the Archbishop".

Journey of the Magi by T. S. Eliot

MERRY CHRISTMAS
