evensong

sun sets on the sky
nothing now of the war that is to be
just the odour of the musk rose
the night bird winging by
a little peace
me

sun sets on the sky
not now the omens as before
just the artistry of heaven
lord stay this war
give another chance to your children

Beautiful. Puts me in mind of the stillness they talked about before the Great War.

Believe me, this mother of a 17-year-old son joins you in this prayer.

James,
My country doesnt want me to read your blog, any blog. It doesnt want to let Indians blog!

This is a lovely poem. I really like it.I wish I didn't have to work around sites so much to get to it.

Dearest Chamki, I'll ring the embassy on Wednesday to register my protest.
