They come riding a donkey
the three wise men of the East,
the camels have lost
in a small incident.
escaped without warning,
then that of King Melchior
behind that of Baltasar.
The gifts they brought
they fell into the sand,
and they could find them
because there was a full moon.
And they loaded on three donkeys
several shiny sacks,
with the gold, frankincense and myrrh
and they left for the East.
Soon to Bethlehem
the three arrived tired,
and they found the camels
sitting next to the child God.
