Wings of Stone  4

Angels watch with darkened gaze
Tears of pearl fall, unfettered,
Flee to cluttered fields and rest;
Frightened children beyond their days
fear wings of stone
with whispered  prayer,
Shall not lift us;
“ O’ Lord,
       Would’st Thou have us know
       Thou shalt smile and intervene
        to soften wings of stone?”
