My Journey

From mind to paper and back again.

Lest we forget

on July 1, 2011

As today is the 95th anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme, I thought I would share this poem which I wrote last year x


A silent prayer; we offer to those,

Who fought and died among the rose.

A flower that grows between and around

The war torn bodies, lay strewn on the ground.


Brave men and women across all the years

Who have fought and died despite their fears.

Families at home, gingerly await

The letter describing their loved ones fate.


Yet still the poppy grows and grows

And we wear it with pride, as an English rose

For once a year we remember the fights

While brothers in arms; in death unite.

(c) Kirstyanne Ross 2010 x
