I mentioned that the poem, Priceless Heroes, was appearing in about 100,000 copies. There has been some feedback on it, which I think worthwhile to share.
The poem’s idea was to thank and sympathize with those medical personnel who have been on the front line throughout the pandemic.
I am grateful to be recognized for my poem.
I thought this was very special. Sometimes things come together better than expected. You can find the poem on the entry here titled, “Priceless Heroes,” or you can read it in one of the News & Views magazines. I am very grateful for the opportunity to do such work.
Another shift, Will additional hours be required? From the beginning, nurses, doctors – Going short of peaceful sleep. Families wondering when All members will again meet. The coronavirus, cruel As a murderer, random as A violent hurricane. Every day at least one Slips away in isolation From those loved and cherished. Caregivers struggle with guilt, Was enough done? Why this senseless loss? So many battles fought, So little medicine can do, Hoping always for a breakthrough. Willing hearts on fire With love for their fellow man Sacrificing whatever they can To beat a disease consuming People throughout all lands. Loving, like angels, sharing All their being to help those Who continue to need them.
