Down Where The Mockingbird Sings

Down where the Mockingbird sings
And the love affair grows
Between the cat and tiny dog
And the chorus from roosters flow 

A bright red-orange sun arises
There fog touches cool dew
Almost the same as yesterday's start
Well! Changes_ there are few

Life issued some bad blows for one
No! Worse for one but more
A whole family in grief_ mourns
Up where politicians bore

Down where a soft gentle rain falls
A zephyr whips brown leaves
Our lives go on but one life stopped
One family still grieves

    this makes me think of the young lady who had postpartum depression, and the docs assured her and her family she did not need the meds any more...and when she was shot to death...the one yr old baby was in the back seat. Couldn't they have just shot out the tires? Excellent poem, Sara. hugs, Catie :)
