Why We Cry

Poetry sounds like snowflakes landing on spring flowers. I write, read and hear poems with my heart.

Why We Cry

For the human race we cry,
for anyone who's born,
for all those who had to die,
for everything we mourn.

For the planet earth we cry,
for every component,
for rivers that had to die,
for all parts we lament.

For the creature life we cry,
for animals that creep,
for species that had to die,
for any death we weep.
