June 6 1944

A place where peace should reign yet terror grows.
A paradise where blood and children lie.
A beach where young boys played and now men die,
With liquid crimson waves that evil sows.
The cliffs now bow and weep and look below,
Where from their shoulders cast a deadly tide.
A peaceful nighttime vista now belied
By daylight's deadly battle of the foes.

As dreams replace the din that's all around
And life drips slowly there into the sand,
It's faith and God and love that now surrounds
These ever grateful souls that have been found.
Brave comrades in this fate so proudly stand
To be delivered now where they are bound

Italian Sonnet

    wow, you did an amazing job with this earlier sonnet. I see it's Italian form. they allow for more "resolution" in the second part. Very good war poem!!

    This poem speaks of many ghosts and does so with conviction and sensitivity. Well done, Craig. My grandfather served in England during the war, my grandmother was a war bride and my father was born in England. Supposedly I have dual citizenship (?) because of my father being British. I hope one day to walk British soil. In regards to your poem, have you seen the film Saving Private Ryan. For those of us who did not live through those times, the movie graphically illustrates the horrors of war.
