Radiating heat to infinity,

Darkening by the second,

A touch of pink on hill and tree.

Yesterday another piece of heaven fell to earth.

We have news that our betters create

A new heaven of beneficent watchers,

Angels of rare metal to stand by our heads,

To stand by our feet,

To cover us with their wings,

To watch over us without cease.

The death of women and children,

The death of hope, the death of goodness.

Thinking for the future, they say.

While bits of heaven fall to earth

And small things die of cold in the late frosts,

And there is so little, so little
