Aphotic day, war's kills confronts
the emptiness of winds engage
losses and wounds to assuage
offers subscriptions to beyond.
Wrong time relied upon virtue,
when the parades appeared empty,
his solitude and wars hefty,
(wished deathly dangers were untrue.)
Concealed the day, a wind's ringlet,
rotates on scopes - for him to care,
tangential path - eternal fare,
how fast approaches the bullet.
A sentry guard on crossroad link,
could be the next century yon,
the prowess stems his lost agon,
his distant stars on dome blink.
Expansive bullet closer speeds,
to love him in twilit pastures,
a crown of merit light captures,
- mistle awards just manly deeds;
Among the dark woods spirits breathe
could be his legion's killed soldiers,
the shriveled shot in dark hollers,
fates' meritorious blades sheathe.
The message passed the mountains strait,
uncouth the miles of death's vastness,
a star's blinking on spread dampness,
as dew drops drop on his tomb's slate.
