At a Park near St. Paul’s Cathedral

After the Sung Eucharist City of London Festival Service and before our tour of the Museum of London, our professor brought us into the Postman’s Park and to the Memorial to Heroic Self-sacrifice. This is a product of that visit.

At a Park near St. Paul’s Cathedral

The gentle sun still shines,
For the Postman’s pond and garden,
Though the clouds and winds have brought a chill,
Down the streets of central London.
Despite the breezes that swept us here,
Through the cardigans we wore,
They were not the cause of our dampened eyes,
Nor the sorrows that we bore.
A wall we saw before us,
Of love and grief and pride,
Of names that who, for others’ sake,
Had sacrificed their lives.

-Sammie Oh
