Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Today the bite of frost nibbles
On icy dusk and rain-spun grass
When prayers glide of nighttime down,
As battle  strikes your whispers yield
Through ambushed maze drilling around.
Yet heartbeats vow for honor, true
Enduring nights…freedom pursued.

Kismet of hope is in the air
While  we all feel your longing thoughts 
Miles away…sweet tidings declare
Your dreams fluttering in chilled fall
About scenes of love and dear home’s care.
The rising star a grain of gold
In moments brave soldiers behold.

Then victory blazes in red
Matching the robin as it sings
From soar of peace…from soar of might
A courage blessed through godly will
Heroes return as breaths alight.
The autumn lays her colors by
As wishes crown your promised sky.

    A beautiful tribute to brave and honorable men. I love the line "your dreams fluttering in chilled fall" They put their dreams on hold to serve and many have trouble resurrecting them from the dark memories.

    " Kismet of hope is in the air..." I always find illumination in your use of language and heart of meaning Nette. " The rising star of grain of gold..." awesome image and import! We are all soldiers, either fighting for the heart or against the heart. J.A.B.

    My father too fought in the war and my uncle who was killed! A touching poem that is the least of tributes we ought to pay to those brave men! Wonderful poem worthy to honor such men as your father! Good luck!

    At first I read "Man of Honor" and said oh this must be about me!!! Kidding, I read this poem and loved it, I am not 100% sure but I think I even got some deeper meaning from it! Either way it was great!!
