Ambulance At Night - Poem by Douglas Gibson

After the ambulance that shakes
The urgent bell that comes and goes
Along the street, the silence wakes
within my heart a million woes.

Outside the silence of my room
I hear the whimper of a leaf
Expanding to the enormous doom
And the whole world engulfed in grief.

The distant dragging of a train
Is a sharp spear within my side;
To-night I carry all the pain
Of mankind once more crucified.
