ONE APRIL DAY
He went to be a soldier one cold and
wintry Spring,dying for a noble cause
that all then believed in;The lilac was just
budding when news of him was sent,
her last letter returned marked ' killed in action'
described ,the honeymoon they’d spent;
feeling the kicking baby within , Gran wept
and cried ,that April day,dear Granpa died.
