I Saw an Angel :
Today I saw an angel
And birds moving around
At a stand of books and books
And the angel smiles and looks
Somewhere deep into god;
As alone I stood in fire
And held book of desire,
The angelís eyes and lips
And words and wings of heaven
Proved what neednít be proven
And gave the touch of god

On The Death Of Friends In Childhood
This poem brings up a lot of questions. Does the child know the difference between heaven or hell? What is moving about it is that Justice wants to seek the child out in the shadows or his memories. He wants a crisp picture of his lost friend. Very Moving
