Poem of the Day

Aylan Kurdi

by Virginia Lowe

 

He lies on the beach

blue shorts, red tee.

Runners on his feet

 

Not asleep

though he looks it

He won’t be walking

any more

 

Only three years old

he doesn’t know he’s gone viral

Too late for him

but not to help the world

find some kindness.
