“A cold coming we had of it . . . “

Journey of the Magi, by T. S. Eliot

"Adoration of the Magi" by El Greco seems a fitting illustration for T. S. Eliot's poem, "Journey of the Magi."

Adoration of the Magi by El Greco (1541-1640)

Here are two readings of “Journey of the Magi” by T. S. Eliot. The first reading is by British reader Martin Harris, and the second is a reading by T. S. Eliot himself. The Poetry Archive link that will take you to the text with the Eliot reading. The poem is beautiful, and would be an excellent choice for an Advent memorization project. .

Listen to T. S. Eliot read his own poem, “Journey of the Magi” (poem text included on this page).
