IN MEMORY
World Trade Center <BR> After 9-11-01 Tragedy

LIGHTS OUT UNTIL TOMORROW

They were symbols, those towers,
Extending in the sky
Of trade, commerce, and union
Even Peace by and by.

A melting pot, working place,
Civilized countriesí dreams
Mutual aim of reconciliation
Till terrorists vented their spleen.

Itís not been easy, living together
On a planet smaller with time
With divergent views, other sides of God,
Destruction without reason or rhyme.

The ultimate of Beauty graces our Earth
Appreciated and nurtured by most
Though at spectrumís end a revolting sight
Of which the warped can boast.

Resolved, above all patient,
That Beauty shall win this race
From this pile a Phoenix arise
At which all mankind embrace!
