Poem for August 28


August 28, 2013

 

 

No bells ring in New Orleans

To sound up memory

Of fifty years

Or eight,

To sound up memory

Of fury, fear, flash and flood

Or

The Baptist boom of a dream.

 

No bells ring in New Orleans, today,

The catholic Catholic city.

Bells ring here

For funerals and other festivals

And

For realities conserve silence.

 

 

Jerry W. Ward, Jr.
