Sorrows Street:



Oh sweet child of Sorrows Street,

Still chaste of hope till mornings greet

Black dogs of poverty pursue on winters chill,

As a sweet child of sorrows street

is crushed beneath the iron maidens will.

Giving thus unto tiny imploring hands

Which, from thin and tattered coat unfurl

For she cries from midst of raging snow,

whilst frozen sorrow gatherers upon the street below.

Her cries of the night on deaf ears do fall,

As the passing clamoring masses, ignore her feeble call.

Simple were the words she had said

As the frost of sorrows street

took from her from this silhouetted time.

For it had laid its claim on this sweet child,

Whose only misdeed,

was to be born in this unmerciful time.

Yet still, if one could only see,

Her frozen last words that fell on the wind of eternity,

Then you would truly know,

That when she spake

That it was of Gods love

And that the angels were there

On sorrows street

And it was her time with them to go.


J. Allen Wilson © 2004


Children can see more in the innocence of their mind,

So much more than educated adults can in a lifetime.

For angels surround us all,

if we would with the mind of a child…listen

just be still and listen to their call.

Oh, this is so beautiful, Allen. I haven't cried this much since I heard the story of The Little Match Girl when I was in grammar school.

J Allen this is another deeply touching write of beauty and sadness a duality which seems to be more prevalent these days than ever before.
I like the hopeful ending;-) Peace Love and blessed Christmas to you and yours!...Love, Eileen
