The Bombed Out Church



St. Luke’s, a living memorial,
not just a burnt out shell,
stands at the top of Bold Street,
With a timely tale to tell.

During the fifth of May,
in nineteen forty one,
almost completely destroyed,
by a random incendiary bomb.

Serving now as a reminder,
of strength in adversity,
looking ahead to the future,
not forgetting our history!
