The Lay of the Lord:Birth– “The Journey”

Early morning finds two small figures,
making their way down to the plain.
Joining the throng of the uprooted,
moved by the will of an empire.
Glancing back upon their town
did they realized they would not see it for many a year?
Or perhaps their only thoughts lay before them:
Bethlehem, a hundred miles away,
to which they would fly gladly if they could,
rather than endure the trials of the way, with a child soon to come.
Both anxious, yet fighting to trust the certainties of God–
that Jesus would come, as surely as the sun rises.
So South they went.
