TAPS

TAPS * TAPS so solemn and words free Yet it openly speaks to me It marks the end of days, The end of life as well. That word free tune is like a thief Replacing joy, leaving grief. Tearing eyes…exhausting sighs No other 24 note musical strain Can say so much and bring such pain. -- Jack Avergun *(Above written for a 9/11 ceremony.) ‘
