. . . And the Old Women Gathered (The Gospel Singers) - Poem by Mari Evans

and the old women gathered
and sang His praises
resolutely together
like supply sergeants who
have seen
and are still
Regular Army: It
was fierce and
not melodic and
although we ran
the sound of it
stayed in our ears . . .

    Such a healing sound, a Gospel choir. Yet the Sound of pain in these words.
    My choir was in a Gospel competition recently, we lost but it was glorious. Just as singing is.
