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

. . . And the Old Women Gathered (The Gospel Singers)




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

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Lyn Paul 14 June 2016

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.
