The changing winds already came
to Boston and to West
All waiting breath's uncertain claim
feels leaden in the breast.
Two cruel days of April haze
have silenced every bird
And put our mindset in a daze
uneasy with the word.
Alarming news of cooking pots
that spit forth shrapnel rage
And twisted fire's swollen knots
that burn the Texas sage.
Two cruel days of April haze
bring trauma once again
But mind emerges from the daze
on notes from sturdy wren.
And heroes you are standing strong
as you have done before
To save one life creates a song
a hymn for evermore.
Two cruel days of April haze
bring trauma once again
But mind emerges from the daze
on notes from sturdy wren.
