NIGHTINGALE'S SOUL LIGHTS

NIGHTINGALE'S SOUL LIGHTS Plain spotless uniform so pure and white Modest neat gear rendering tender loving fight Day, night 'till wee hours, eyes a must wide awake Extending a hand, shaking off all aches Tiptoeing like a sly in and out of rooms Dim ~ quiet same as white garden tombs Grace under pressure upon first newborn's cry Wiping tears from a gentle old man's dying eye Evenings so dark and mornings so bright Everyday a nurse sees life kaleidoscope lights Despite some voice rudeness to foul remarks Kindness,her soul's sweet perfume, larks A nurse appears unfeeling firm when mankind bleeds Within her are hidden soft golden beauty deeds (c) 11:47pm July 06, 2014

Sending white light... an often used line between friends... your poem does the same and in a very unique setting.. honoring the people of the "white forces' oftentimes underpaid and undervalued. But ain't it so that these 'kind of people' form the glue of a social and REAL caring society? Your poem a golden dead .. Congrats on your top placement on my winners list.

Wonderful homage to such a worthy profession - loved this piece. Captures so elegantly the devotion behind the work they do. Thanks for sharing, David Btw, I wrote one for a nurse/ dear friend called 'Opening hearts'.
