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

Personally, this poem by justice is extremely well written. The way he
simply states, "we shall not ever meet them beared in heaven"(line 1) shows
how the innocence of his lost friend will be preserved. Lovely, simply
lovely.

I agree tha it is a well-typed poem, but now the rest of my day will be
crappy and depressing. That's just my opinion. I prefer blue skies and
sunshine to overcast skies and cold rain.
