Window Star

By S. Arthur Yates

Resplendent, they appear.
Strangers, unwelcome.

Polite, always polite.
Strangers, unwelcome.

Details few, words hollow.
Strangers, unwelcome.

Notification -- complete.
Strangers, unwelcome.

The drape arrives later.
Strangers, unwelcome.

Blue star to gold.

Strangers
Unwelcome

(The significance of a window star is not universally known.  A blue star is placed in the window when a loved one goes to war.  If they were wounded in action the star is changed to silver.  If they die, it is changed to gold-a Gold Star family)
