No Soldiers Here

To die midstream 
moonbeam of rosette 
bloom
Unseen to down-pour 
whites of greyness grown
Be poisoned spears to 
soldiers gone too soon
From country-cuddling 
hold and seeds unsown.

Through wintery cold of 
dewy-morning scorn
Where lies comfort in 
dreams of homeward 
force
The soldier's toil be made 
the clarion-horn
To cheering crowds of 
clouds to rain-remorse.

And dust o'er dust, the 
soldiers buried, reign
A waste of years before 
the waste behind
As mourning silence o'er 
medallions feign
Dethrones the rest and 
battle-days remind.

THE EPITAPH
"A soldier shall ne'er 
grow to death unblest
Unless uþon regrets, be 
laid to rest".
