Poem by Wendye Savage

Angel

Twenty angels went to school

In hopes that they would learn;

Twenty angels left from home

And never will return.

Slaying of the young and innocent

Mother’s facing a partial empty nest;

Magic once felt in their arms

Must now be laid to rest.

Each one held hope and promise

Had so much to give;

Shattered dreams and shattered lives

In what society do we live?

When twenty angels went to school

In hopes that they would learn;

Twenty angels left from home

And never will return.
