Because Of Fear - Poem by Richard Fuerst

Cold arctic air descends nevously on frozen lakes today
Wild flowers fall to their knees to pray
Snowflakes beg, grass shivers, and rivers thirst
Eagles watch apprehensively from miles above

Because of fear
White glaciers melt in mud and flames
Sunlight chokes, leaves weep, and the forrest falls
Morning wrings her worried hands
Because of fear, love sins
And days sleep with the night

Because of fear
Apples are poisoned, babies are burned
And ancient paths near temples are destroyed
The air beneath the white dove's wing is dead
Bombs explode, earth bleeds
And forever is lost in seconds

Because of fear, love sins
And days sleep with the night
