Monthly poem - May

Angels
There are angels made of stone
And those of flesh and blood
Whose future is unknown

We are born and die alone
In a house or in a wood
There are angels made of stone

Though my flesh still covers bone
Only birds escape the flood
Whose futures are unknown

No god upon a gold throne
Rain turns earth to mud
There are angels made of stone

Those birds have already flown
Love runs in the blood
My future is still unknown

The angels are back in town
Pray for them I should
Those angels made of stone
And those of flesh and blood.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
