A Poem for the Day


The day was bright and shone with light.

The flowers grew up in April.

Down on the grasses they shot – and – and –

On our stone paths we fell down, we fell

Down on shots that ring from rooms

With signs posted: bleeding to death,

The day was, bright, and, shone, with light.

The flowers, grew up in, April?

Up in the book shelves they broke – so – much –

Of our books, of the stories we tell

To each other… and in the end

A boy fell from a window…

The day was bright – it shone with light –

    Excellent poem. To me it captures the theme of schools nowadays. The violence and potential violence along with (just me) some overreaction of society (a small part). If you don’t mind I would love to feature this on my Poetry Corner. I will just reblogged your post on my blog so others can visit you page. Again nicely done!; .
