Notre Dame Cathedral

Nortre Dame Cathedral, 
ancient and regal
devoured by smoke and flame
history lost, stones crumble
who is to blame?

water and flame fight
deep into the April night
Parisians in the streets
watch the lady's defeat
mournful songs fill the smokey air

in the morning, hearts in mourning
will the Grand Dame of Paris still be there?
