A poem for all the lost
 



Unknown Soldier 

The summer sky and ringing bells 

Girls dancing amongst crocus shells 

And poppies growing into wildly view 

Looking at the world anew 

But far away, and near at hand 

Bodies scattered over land 

And underground they lie and rot 

They are the ones the world forgot 

Even though for us they battled 

Behind the machine guns that rattled 

And killed men from foreign lands 

Who excepted Peter's gentle hands 

Those left behind lived in earthly hell 

In squalor and the rancid smell 

With panic and the dreadful fear 

Unable to cry out or shed a tear 

The summer sky and ringing bells 

Girls dancing amongst crocus shells 

And poppies growing wildly into view 

Looking at the world anew 

They are far away, and near at hand 

People scattered over land 

And underground they lie and rot 

They are the ones the world forgot
