Tragic Poems

Updated on November 9, 2014

Tragic Poems

Tragic events catch us when we are unsuspecting.

There is tragedy in war which is not always as expected, even through war is, by definition, tragic. Other tragic events are truly unexpected and these have touched us all.

Below are links to some of the original poems that I have written about tragic events that have touched me. There are 2 sections: Specific Tragic Events and Tragic Events Through Time. The first set are ordered by the date of the event.

I hope you are moved by these poems
