Poets write verses about summer
fleeting and whimsical.
I am ankle deep with sorrow
Humanity is consumed in darkness
let the watchman ring the bells,
turn the lights
and bring hope back into our hearts.
Restore humanity with love
and let it spread
with understanding and grace.
This poem is written for http://dversepoets.com/ where we writing about the watchman. Personally I was having coffee this morning with my husband and I was expressing how sad I feel when I watch the news and see the condition humanity is in. There is so much that is tragic and senseless and it leaves me feeling despair.
