Snow in Madrid

(a poem of the Spanish Civil War

in the 1930's)


by Joy Davidman


Softly, so casual,


Lovely, so light, so light,


The cruel sky lets fall


Something one does not fight.


How tenderly to crown


The brutal year


The clouds send something down


That one need not fear.


Men before perishing


See with unwounded eye


For once a gentle thing


Fall from the sky.
