April Come She Will~

God has left his fingerprints
In Boston town this day...
Where everywhere is centered there
As seen in teardrops of those who pray;
In the Cathedral of dedications in memorium
In the solemn words- there read
Honoring the wounded and the mangled
In honor of: 'The Dead';
In a town where good still survives
Where evil made it's creeping-crawling way
By the hands of sheer terror spent
In the two explosion's of this 15th day;
The Boston Marathon ending in sorrow and fear
Upon this Patriots Day- a permanent mark
Awakening all of God's Angels of Light
In need of their beams - in a world gone dark;

    Evil force can never win, but some suffer, that's the tragedy. I'm hurt and was pondering over the atrocity of the numb, block-headed terrorists! (Report) Reply

    I hope they catch them too - another dreadful incidence of man's inhumanity to man, will it ever end!
    Good one Theodora. (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
