Flanders Visit



There They Stand In Silence


Upon This Field Of Green


Bent And Humble


With Canes In Hand


Where Long Past


Their Youth They Lost


Amid The Poppies Red


Now In Awkward Silence


Apart From Wives And Children


They Commune With Shades


Awakened By Their Visit


To This Verdant Field


Where Poppies Hid The Carnage


For Those Brief Spring Days


Oh So Long Ago


In The War To End All Wars
