The World Stopped Turning

February 14, 2008
By Lummy Lin, Sammamish, WA

A small, pale child tumbled down a well

Into death’s arms he quietly fell

Then the world paused on its axis -

Minutes halted their soldiering steps -

Silence fell solemn over the earth’s depths

Rests a veil upon all creatures

Mourning a death unknown to Power

Oh, the smashed bones and hearts each hour!

When will the world once more suspend -

Pull the reins on dashing Time again -

To keep Sabbath weeping the Fall of Men?
