I remember the sun was shining;
That still amazes me when I think back
To the edge of where I sat, reclining
While the silver lining became a crack
And I watched the sky fall on my TV.
I remember my kids were doing math
When the phone rang. I heard our world changed. We
Chanted “Our Father” and tried to do the math
With wet eyes, in front of the TV set- glue
held us fast. (But the math didn’t last long.)
I remember my kids building Legos, too.
They began building when their world went wrong.
Methinks this is what the sun had up his sleeve-
I remember; and I still believe.
