“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

(crash-break)

My brother won’t come home.

The war is over.
