Remember the 76

July 31, 2011

In memory of the recent tragedy, an insubstantial poem:

Norway remember Ibsen,
Not the wayward christian
Who gunned your nation’s young:

“To bleed, in our great common cause, for others”
And not to close your doors, and to keep the world
In your embraces.

Remember your roses that grow
Long since when we today have lain
In our common earth. We share
This one and common earth.
