Remembrance (2) – Fallen Heroes

Fallen Heroes

Spirited poppy fields generate peace
illustrious host to the Fallen
they lie in solemn mastery
sheltered in eternal life
in commemoration
steadfast forefathers
salutation
fervent souls
gently
sleep.

World
lament
urgency
necessitates
guided direction
forefathers influence
compassion in tender age
all-inclusive acknowledgement
planting amiable principles
strengthening unity in all countries
