Someone’s Son

Someone’s Son

Someone’s son buried alive.
Fighting wars evils contrive.
Mother’s joys cannot survive.

    Dear Dane Ann, this is wonderful! Seems challenging but I'm up to it. Will give it a try! Thanks for imparting this knowledge. Have never heard of an Englyn! Thanks again for your kind comments on my poem. Peace and love, Audrey
