A Christmas Eve Poem: Children Singing in Latin

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, East Greenwich, Rhode Island*

The Inspiration

I wrote this poem several years ago after attending Christmas Eve services with my brother and his family. (I’d been away from the Church for a while.) The purity of the children’s voices singing in Latin behind me left me so awestruck I was afraid to turn around.
