FALLEN
'Yesterday evil visited us.
We do not know why, we
probably never will’
Ron Taylor
Headteacher at Dunblane Primary School
March 13  1996
 

Angels are shining on the
dew this dawn.
We live now an eerie hush,
a silenced place.
Our leaves are weeping their mourn.
Loss has trapped us
and tomorrow now
will not be theirs
Please grant them eternal rest.
