An evil simmers through the milling crowd;
two brothers carry fire packed in urns.
They relish killing with their hate endowed;
they take the innocent and try to burn.
The evil fails to take Jane’s Irish, proud,
but tries that little heart of dance that yearns.
The hate enkindled by the fire allowed;
our love of Jane is where we all must turn.
(form: Roundeau Redouble`)
Jane, the little Irish dancer, age 7, lost her brother, Martin, age 8 and one of her legs in the marathon-terror-blast.
