After the Martyrdom
By Scharmel Iris
From “Lyrics”

THEY threw a stone, you threw a stone,
  I threw a stone that day.
Although their sharpness bruised his flesh
  He had no word to say.
But for the moan he did not make        5
  To-day I make my moan;
And for the stone I threw at him
  My heart must bear a stone.
