Ashes, ashes, we all fall down Terzanelle question ku chaser

December’s cold wind starts to bite
festive are the lights all around
yet children are nowhere in sight

hurry come quick, what is that sound
a bell tolls but what is it for
festive are the lights all around

something evil came through the door
not in song, yet they all fall down
a bell tolls but what is it for

tragedy struck this little town
tiny children hold hands in fear
not in song, yet they all fall down

they can’t comprehend what they hear
school always was a place to play
tiny children hold hands in fear

many angels were born that day
December’s cold wind starts to bite
school always was a place to play
yet children are nowhere in sight

a church bell tolls
as a nation mourns
why did so many fall?

    I so enjoyed rereading this piece again. When I came up with the questionku this was the kind of poetry I had hoped for. Hard hitting and emotional writing.

    Images in the poem create a frightful atmosphere. Bell tolls and not for a song. Children are no where to be found.......too good dear.

    wow, that is quite admirable to do such a great tribute in terzanelle form. I wrote a poem on the victims of the black plague a long time ago, and I named it after this rhyme as well: they all fall down. It's a very fitting way to do a poem on the children that fell to the shooter. I really liked your poem. Very creative.
