Haiku Sung to You


Heavenly singing.

Just high schoolers; can it be?

From Bellevue Christian.

Passing through our town,

Going to perform up North,

Sang at Meadow Greens.

Foretaste of heaven,

About fifty voices strong;

They sang for an hour.

Sang a cappella,

“In chapel style” as they say:

Without instruments.

Soprano, alto,

Tenor, baritone and bass,

All sang heartily.

From cathedral lays,

To spirituals sung by slaves,

And old classic hymns.

Our hearts burned within;

Affection to God was stirred,

A longing for Home.

For more Haiku, visit Jennifer over at Playgroups are No Place for Children and Christina at A Mommy Story.

(Just to let you know: Meadow Greens is where my elderly mom lives, not me (yet!). I was over visiting her today, and happened to catch the best singing I think I have EVER heard. Thankfully the choir will be back in town this Saturday at 7:30pm at Bethel Christian Reformed Church. That way more members of our family will have the opportunity to hear these talented young people sing. The performance location and time are for you local readers who might be able to come!)
