The following poem was published in the fall/winter 2018-19 issue of Magnets and Ladders. you can click the play button below the poem to hear me read it and sing the song that inspired it, accompanying myself on piano.
THE POOR BLESSED VIRGIN
She stands, alone, cold, weary
after traveling many days and nights.
Why was she chosen to bear this Holy Child?
Must she do it alone?
Will Heaven help her?
