Oh Hannah

By Sarah McCuan
April 19, 2012

In Memory of Isaac Davis, blacksmith of Acton,
who died on the Old North Bridge, April 19, 1775


I am dead

I fell at the head of the bridge

You felt the ball pierce my skin

Before it pierced my heart

My blood has stained the ground

It colors the coats of those who pressed beside me

Who after the pursuit of my murderers

Gently marched my torn corpse homeward

Solemnly they lay it in your Acton parlor

Our sons and daughters

Toss in their beds today

Tomorrow they will rise

They will fight for that for which I have fought --- and died.

Oh Hannah ---

Take care of the children.
