Falling Angels: Sonnetina Rispetto



Shooting stars from heaven above,
falling down losing faith and love,
banished for reasons unknown.
Skies roar, clouds cry their hearts out,
nothing fertile can they sprout.
Scattered angels roam alone,
shooting stars from heaven above,
falling down losing faith and love.

Moist earth silently stares,
can’t hold them forever here.
Banished for reasons unknown,
scattered angels roam alone.
Shooting stars from heaven above,
falling down losing faith and love.
