32 Angels 64 Wings

32 angels 64 wings
Silenced now
They no longer sing

32 angels 64 wings
Sorrows unveiled
and hearts that sting

32 angels 64 wings
senselessly ended
the carillons ring

32 angels 64 wings
Silenced now
They no longer sing

    JoAnn, I don't know why I missed this one before. At first I couldn't figure out what you mean, then I realized about the 32 young lives that were stolen that day. A beautiful memorial for a tragedy that the whole world was saddened by. As Mel has said before me, we can only pray that it will never happen again. Thanks for sharing it my friend.

    A very sad and heartfelt poem for those who died needlessly, a time of sorrow shared by caring people of the world. We can only pray that a situation like this never happens again. A beautiful poem here JoJo, Thankyou--Melvina-- (Report) Reply

    Beautifuly sorrowed memorial, Joann....Its times and events like this when you literally have to, say a prayer, and say that these students & teachers were all a part of a most important long term for at least 1 week, both sides of the political aisle joined hands & were of the same heart, vein, & mindset...and perhaps, in the long haul, it will result in a better understanding as to how precious our children & loved ones are...and how their lives must stop being compromised, here, & abroad.Nice Work, J.J...

    Senseless Sorrow. Ban Guns. When Freedom is abused in this way then action is needed. (Report) Reply

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
