2000 Years

2000 years since that bright eastern star,
2000 years and still we’ve not “got very far”!
2000 years? But a “Spec” in the universe-span.
2000 years since the birth of that certain man.

2000 years since the offerings of Myrrh, Frankincense, Gold,
2000 years and His story needs to be told,
2000 years – yes celebrate! – but ‘midst the Joy and the fun,
Remember whose birth started the counting at “one”!
