Ode to a Community

Late this afternoon my husband and I wanted a stroll,
So off to the Douglas Preserve we did go.
As we arrived and parked our car,
The fire truck and EMTs we saw from afar.
They were loading a woman into the van,
The brave responders, woman and man,
Not knowing what was wrong, we hoped she was fine,
And that they had gotten to her in time.
Walking on the path we talked to others there,
Wondering what had happened, as we cared,
While we grabbed our phones and looked at the screen,
To see if edhat had reported what we had seen.
Where is Roger, we asked each other in turn,
For we knew that from him we would learn,
What had happened to the woman, you see,
As he is the one who keeps us up to speed.
