“Victory Day“ by Jessica Nelson-Tyers

The bells ring

(cling, clang)

Feet dance

(tippity tap)

Voices sing

(hip hooray)

Hands clap

(slap, slap)

The streets cheer:

‘The war is over!’

My curtains draw

(swish, swash)

My clock clicks

(tick, tock)

My tears slip

(drip, drop)

My heart aches


My brother won’t come home.

The war is over.
