Cloudburst

My telephone rang one fine spring day
I was certain that I heard my sister say
Your cousin Jim has just passed away
I hung my head in sorrow as if to pray

My heart bled for his delicate mother
And I agonized for his good brother
I felt profound sorrow for his sister
As I did listen to my heart whimper
