The Heroes of 9/11 [Ode]
Lest We Forget
by: Winnie Kay

With melting steel and crumbling stone,
the Towers could not stand.
Borne from that dust, a seed was sown,
uniting this great land.

Let's not forget the sacrifice
the Heroes claimed that day.
Their courage chose the highest price,
'Neath steel and stone and clay.

[Alternating lines of Iambic Tetrameter and Trimeter]
