Strong tower

Oh you were razed
years ago strong tower
felled and your silenced
bell ignominiously
topping a pile of rubble

I gazed upon you
disconsolately softly
holding the raised hand
of an adored still tiny

Daddy! I’ve never
seen you cry before –
and grateful for
her watchful
presence I told her

of the silence and the
call within your
hallowed walls long
years before
still tiny too then

I lifted my own
watchful eyes to
stained glass throne
and glory and the song

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus
Dominus et Deus Omnipotens

Holy, Holy, Holy
Lord and God Almighty

Strong Tower raised there
in beeswax-scented silence
