Saved by the angels


Poem Commentary

It was a poem inspired by my contracting a flu - not swine flu- over two years ago. At the time, I had to cope for five days  alone in England's windy spring with the then 11 months old daughter and nearly three years old son while my husband was away.   

Saved by the angels

Saved by the angels, was I

Tiny and generous
Dainty but Strong
Caring and Courageous

With wobbly legs did she move
Caressing my stiffened body, 
Awakening a spiritless soul,
Lavished one with the sweetest scent  

Exhausted, he yanked me 
Told one to play and pray;
to rejuvenate and rejoice, 
even if in tears

For those I was truly saved

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
