White Crosses

Gravestones, white crosses
bone-chill breaths of old ghosts, stirs-
Dried, blood-red poppies.

United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

Lost Wars dedicated to Remembrance and Veterans Day

When on Remembrance Day
There is no one at the parade
The war is lost
Dead heroes’ died in vain

This shall be a countries shame

Short Veterans Day poem by Anna-Marie Docherty| Details | |

Best foot forward

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clott gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthralls
Danger rings apprehension stalls

A Salute To The Fallen

Brass handles, polished,  
Purple  satin,  heavenly,  
Perfect   wedding   suit,  
National   flag   neatly  draped.
I  salute  thee,  soldier   mine!

Short Veterans Day poem by Stuart Ackerman| Details | |

Shredded Lives

The flick-flack of the shredded Flag, the bugle marking time

The Soldier laid to rest, midst those that went before

The crosses like snow-white trees, stunted before their Prime

In order, line upon line, do we never learn from War?

Haiku 26 Echoes




                   mountains, fields, forest

                             stand witness to the blood cries

                                            the song of freedom

Short Veterans Day poem by Mikayla Borchard| Details | |

I Wish

I wish the world was peaceful
And no one had to die
I wish to banish agony and pain
So no one had to cry
I wish for no violence
No shrapnel in the thigh
I wish for more respect in the world
So soldiers could get by
I wish the world was pure and good 
So no one had reason to lie

Short Veterans Day poem by jessie conner| Details | |

The meaning of the flags with stars

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

honor pride
courage and love
the whole package from above

god is here
in us all
in the soldiers
who rise and fall

give your love 
and warm hearts
to the men away
doing their part

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

Short Veterans Day poem by Carrie White| Details | |

If you care

If you care
Nothing changes
When God takes
you for a walk
The fallen stay
on the battlefield
Then a stranger
holds your hand 
And says "If you 
want peace, prepare 
for war"
Behind the curtain
Final moments
& a fatal goodbye




Another poem inspired by the new poems page. Written with titles from other poems. This is for Veterans Day.

Short Veterans Day poem by Peter Thomas| Details | |

Nothing to lose

Broken, Cold, Empty, Devoid of hope
These are the forgotten generation
These are the few who stood up
The young that fell for such a cause

Lost, scarred, unremembered,
These boys sent with hope of glory
Learn instead what it costs
To die a nameless death

Over they go with nothing to lose
Over they fall with nothing to lose
Over they die with nothing to lose

We Are a Poem

http://youtu.be/p79ztWTnugE

You will not 
    seperate us.
For it is hate
    and love that made us.
It is the great and the small
    that reverberate within our bones.
It is every syn and antonym,
every opposite every known,
    the many, the alone.
         We are a poem.
You will never 
    isolate us
for it is truth
    and art that made us.
         We are a poem.

I Salute the Veterans

I Salute the Veterans
By Franklin Price
11/8/2015

I salute the veterans
My hand is to my brow
Standing at attention
I recognize us now

My brothers and my sisters
Short timers, lifers, all
I commend us for our service
When our country came to call

We answered to our nation 
To protect an oath we gave
All of us gave something 
Some gave all unto the grave

Short Veterans Day poem by Evan Griffin| Details | |

Yesteryear

I look at the photos of yesteryear,
Gazing at the faces of people,
I once knew.
With our rifles and our gear,
Crowded together were we,
Under the winter sky.
Those haggard faces all so drear,
Still stare out at me in voices I once knew,
Calling my name.
I look still at the photos of yesteryear,
Time has passed, the voices are gone,
And the photo will one day fade.

Man Slaughter

Who can curse the panga? With it we defend our territory Who can bless the panga? By it we lost our kinsmen Trounce Bounce Butcher Who can love or hate the panga Roll Troll Wail Who doesnt one a panga? war woes foes The pangas we keep for our privilege The monsters that tear our tatters As we cut our adversary our brothers perish

war

i wittnessed a war just yesterday,
being the reason for much dismay,
i'm sorry for all the death and blood,
and all the soldiers in the mud,
i wish i could stop it just can't be done,
i'll need everybody including a nun,
i'll need jesus to forgive our sins,
that knock us down like bowling pins,
i'll need everybody to read this poem,
in hopes that all the soldiers get back home.

a soldier peom

there is a soldier who is dying while
there is a soldier who is crying

there is a soldier who is weeping while
there is a soldier who is sleeping

there is a soldier who is had moved away while
there is a soldier who is had passed away

there is a soldier who is standing while
there is a soldier who is praying 

there is a soldier who has left home while
there soldier who has come home

Veterans, We Thank You

Veterans, we thank you
We know you went through
America is what you look up to

You do things right
You always fight
You always follow the civil rights

Oh, may God bless you veterans
You guys always be confident
You guys are a legend

I salute you
We bless you
We respect you

You're not doing this for money
Don't be naughty
But you have the right to enforce democracy

Thank you, Veterans!!

Short Veterans Day poem by Cheyenne Marbury| Details | |

Thank You

Thank you to our soldiers:

For standing in the line of fire
You are the best example of what this country can acquire
I know that being away from your family isn’t easy
Thinking about your sacrifice always makes me feel queasy
The battle that you are currently fighting in
Makes living day to day feel like such a win
Without you, our eagle would not soar
So thank you very much for fighting this war
