Newtown, Connecticut
14 December 2012

Angel of evil do not descend on this sunlit town in early morning,
First grade not yet accustomed to the day, coats crowded on hooks,
In corridors the scraping of boots, busy hands adjusting at desks,
The bell has rung, their teacher greets, she hovering over them.
Toward the windowsill a sidelong glance, the candle the wreath.
Their Christmas nearing. Still so new at six.
Be merciful angel, do not alight. Stay winged, pass over.

Wish it would have worked out that way, truly.

I think a lot of them do work out that way, fortunately.

We'll never know though...
