Sacred Song – a poem by Rupert M Loydell

Sacred Song

I am totally caught up in the music on my radio:
songs sung by a choir, mesmeric and ghostly, 
hallowed even, this close to midnight.

The announcer says it is Holy Week, 
but my daughter complains it is 'not very nice'. 
It is time to surrender, turn off and go to sleep.
