For Boston

Sticks and stones
May shatter bones.
Steel tears hearts asunder.
Smoke and fire
Are the devil’s choir,
Who’s songs are mankind’s blunder.

But through the violence
And moments of silence
We make a noble choice:
We remember those
Slain by our foes.
We carry on their voice.

So bombings and such,
Our fears they touch,
But our hope cannot be shattered.
Toll Heaven’s bell
For those who fell,
And remember that they mattered.

    I am so sorry for America and the victims in Boston. I saw the footage last night and it truly was awful.
