On the Magi: Through centuries Bishop Graham Kings January 7, 2016 Poetry Editor’s note: Over the course of this week, in celebration of Epiphany, we will be publishing a series of poems on the Magi by Bishop Graham Kings, originally included in Andrew Wheeler’s Desire of Nations: The Magi, their Journey and the Child (2015). Advertisement Through centuries From the beginning, Magi pondered and travelled; offered and worshipped. For the record, Matthew collected taxes and stories; scribed and described. In the sermon, Lancelot Andrewes translated and prayed; preached for the King. Through the poem, T S Eliot essayed and imagined; journeyed to Christ.
