911 & 9/11

When its 911
We promptly answer the call
Always prepared
To give our all
Lives in danger
Do not delay
It's a call for help
The number say
And on 9/11 we felt the same
The call went out
THe rescuers came
So many heroes
Answered the call
Without hesitation
They gave their all
Now in rememberance
Of that fateful day
May it never happen again
Is what we pray

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
