Mourning..., a poem written by David R Mellor at
Aлесь Yсцінаў



written by: David R Mellor


I wake up to coffee
My failing eye sight
Classical music gently calming down
The beats of the coming day

My cat encircles me
Wanting food
And then with trepidation
I turn on the news

They are waking up to
An underground shelter
Darkness all around them

Hearing in the distance
The slow thunder of tanks

And the loss of their lives
