The Omen of Winter After the 9/11 Attacks

But in the end the snows descend from cloudy winter skies;

And lakes will freeze when all the trees are stripped of their supplies.

(Excerpt From the Prologue of the 9/11 Epic Poem)

This second half of the first stanza of the poem describes not only a typical North American Winter, but the spiritual and moral disaster that many people anticipated after the September 11th attacks. The dark side of human nature had reared it’s ugly head again, and everyone knew that war was coming.
