Sounds Of Civil War

I crossed the Fields of Misery 
And wept in blood-let streams. 
I saw the face of Terror 
Frozen in a soldier's scream. 

I heard the sound of laughter; 
Children playing in the sun. 
I heard the sound of thunder; 
Clapping from a torrent gun. 

I knelt with bitter silence; 
Mute heroes washed ashore. 
I heard the distant cannons 
Chanting hymns of civil war.
