Between Bright Stars One Had Lost Its Way - Poem by Gert Strydom

(after Eugène Terreblancé)

Between bright stars one had lost its way
whipping a third of the other stars down
with its curly tail, inciting them to decay
and I wonder about the origin of that one

but a much brighter light shone in the heavens,
leading wise men from far off in the east,
moving past every other star and planet,
with a host of angels coming with a confession

that the God of the heavens
had come to man on earth,
daring life as a mere human
and a crowd followed Him

at first wanted to make Him king,
and when they did not comprehend His kingdom
they became thoughtless,
hitting nails through the God of heaven and earth.
