Sirens

The sirens, the sirens,

They came early today.

The sirens, the sirens,

Signal help is on its way.

The sirens, the sirens,

Hint humanity still has hope.

The sirens, the sirens,

Puts my medical study into scope.

Nathalie White grew up in Sunnyvale, TX, and graduated from Dallas Baptist University. The sirens from an ambulance weigh heavy on her heart when she hears them. Sirens are sounded multiple times a day in the medical district, and she listens to them, actually hearing them and letting herself feel what they mean. This short poem tries to express that feeling.
