Screams of September
they lie the children twisted in a hospital morgue.
are the true orphans of Mother Russia. These are the victims of a deadly plague that
arrogantly parades itself around the world. Rejoicing in the name of terrorism!
Yet, on that September day, never
was seen such generous acts of love and heroism.
And will the trees in Beslan this
month scream murder?
And again will those concrete canyons
of steel in New York recall the disorder?
So to will Beslan weep continually
for this day in September,
So to will Beslan and New York, this
month mourn and remember
missing daughters, husbands, sons and wives, who have gone, perhaps forever!
But all Christians will rejoice that
this ninth month,
Remembers St. Matthew (21st) and St.
Michael (29th) both.
But listen: did not instant terrorist
murders in 1972 confer,
Upon Israeli athletes the crown of
sanctity that lost day in September?
But, September in the Rain, September
Song, September of my Years,
Remain the finest ballads that the
20th century cultivated and still offers.
Classical composers of merit: Edvard
Grieg and Anton Bruckner,
Also celebrated their lineage by being
born in genial September.
The Screams of September remind us
that, 'the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away: Blessed be the name of the Lord'
The Screams of September will from the twin towers
tender: a final adieu!
The screams of September from School No. 1 in Beslan
proclaims a Decisive:
Dasvidanya! Xristos Vo Skres
(Goodbye) (Christ is Risen)
In loving memory
