~a Sudden Boom - Poem by Adeline Foster

A Sudden Boom

A sudden boom
A moment’s pause —
A wondering where
Or what the cause
Then back about our chores.
The noise forgot —
The day is hot;
What thought have we for wars:
Until our loved one must depart;
Now it’s our family torn apart:
The strife now is our own

    It's a nice precise poem Adeline - talking about our self conscious.or about our actions what we do. Is it really of any use or gives pain and strife only? (Report) Reply
