Mary tells Joseph she is pregnant

Joseph, I’m Pregnant

“Joseph, I’m pregnant.”
Mary tries to explain how this can be
But doubts and disbelief colliding in his head
Prevent any hearing of what Mary
Tries in vain to share.
Pain for the young woman he loves;
Terror at the Law’s severity
Overwhelm him.
“Who could have done this to her?”
“God of Abraham, have pity on Mary.
God of Abraham, have mercy on us.”
Exhausted, he falls into a deep sleep and dreams.
