After The First Child's Death - Poem by David McLansky

After the first Child's Death
There was no dying;
God looked down
His soul bereft
Then He who invented Earth
Created Heaven;
Labored three days worth
Their bodies leaven;
As clouds rain tears
Angels skyward rise
Washed innocent of death
Buoyed by human sighs.
