Breaking news

This just in:
a Galilean teenager
has been told she’s
expecting, that the baby
she’s carrying will be
the long-awaited messiah,
the Jewish messiah, can
any good thing come
out of Galilee? Family
spokesman Joe, her fiancé
apparently, would say only
that it was the plan of the Lord
and declined further comment.
The girl herself quoted
a popular song and said
let it be.

Painting: The Annunciation, with Saint Emidus, by Carlo Crivelli (1486), National Gallery of Art, London.

And when the night is cold
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
