To Irena – Phil Kershner

Shelley saw futility in the sands of time–
Irena Sendler found the eternal
in saving a child from the ghetto,
saw infinity as our light
joining the lights of others,
shining long after death
until the universe is cold.
The question is not
was Ozymandias’ kingdom eternal
only was it kind?
