5. And, finally, today’s poem for Ukraine: Nothing I can Say, by Michael Swan (PDF below, too.)

Nothing I can Say

A woman and three children

under a bridge,

her hand clapped over

the little one’s mouth.

The sound of boots

on the road

coming closer.

Nothing I can say

will change anything.

Michael Swan
