Refugee – A Quadrille


Salty tears fill vacant eyes
that have seen too many
atrocities that no child
should ever witness
Crying, following
grown ups wherever they go
Sobbing in time with
their shuffling feet
Weighed down
by their winter clothes
and bundled belongings
Going anywhere but here

Bjorn is hosting Monday Quadrille at D’Verse Poets.
Tonight he has prompted us with the word “Eyes”
I saw a heartbreaking segment in the news last night and it featured a little Ukrainian boy who couldn’t have been more than 3 or 4, sobbing his eyes out as he wandered along with the refugees. It touched me deeply.
