In 1927, he also wrote one of his best short poems, "Journey of the Magi," a Browningesque dramatic monologue in which one of the unnamed wise men mentioned in the second chapter of St. Matthew's Gospel retells the story of his visit to Bethlehem.
Eliot declared the poems better than his own emulation of the Wicked Wasp in the "Fire Sermon" section of "The Waste Land" (cut at Ezra Pound's insistence), but urged Smith to destroy them.
