Loss of Innocents - an Original Sonnet Poem for Newtown, Connecticut

Updated on July 22, 2014

Loss of Innocents

This is a very somber evening. Another great and senseless loss has occurred this day in the USA. I am saddened and sickened and want these horrific events to end. This tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut has left a lump in my heart.

Here is Loss of Innocents, an Original Sonnet for Newtown, Connecticut by Mindy Makuta (aka MyFairLadyah) Reprint with Permission

Loss of Innocents

A Sonnet for Newtown, Connecticut

Loss of innocents, Lord how can we bear

Torn from nurtured hallowed halls of learning

Wrenched hearts are in agony everywhere

Calling to our own with desperate yearning

There are no words to take away the pain

Of parents who have not their child to hug

Can we counsel such lost minds to refrain?

From striking with obscure intent so smug

Our communities rally near and far

To comfort the loss of each gentle life

Look up now to see the new fledgling stars

Whose light will illuminate through our strife

This loss of innocents; too soon; too soon

Has arced through our hearts like a harpoon

Thank You for Reading the Loss of Innocents
