    -------------------------------------------


    The guns are silent
    now,
    although a far off rumble,
    is still
    heard.
    Clover grows in fields
    where soldiers fell
    and lay
    dying.

    Freedom is ours
    to do
    with
    what we may,
    but not
    without
    a dear price.

    The shadow of Crosses
    on graves
    around the
    world
    fall
    across the final resting
    place
    of thousands
    who bought
    our freedom for us.

    Today, as we salute
    our
    Flag
    and celebrate
    our
    freedom,
    let us remember its
    price,
    and the Sons
    and Daughters
    who paid
    for it.

      Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.

    I've never seen a remembrance for martyrs in war, but I can vaguely tell what it's about. War sadly has no victors, only victims. But is it really necessary for someone else to die for liberty? It's a question of obligation to self and country.
    This is why I don't understand extreme patriotism.

    Anyhow, no point getting political.

    Clover grows in fields
    where soldiers fell
    and lay
    dying.


    Liked this part. Gave me a strong image. I think you know I like battlefield scenes...

    Still wondering why we have to fight at all...

    Cheers always

      I salute your words Ron and the saddest thing is that these deaths keep adding up in Iraq and Aphganistan and I really can't see who is really benefitting from these current deaths. I refuse to get political in my comments about works of art. All I will say is your words carry much truth brother.

      right on Ron!!! i believe in honoring those that have served our country preserving our freedom.
    this really is a heart felt piece and i did throughly enjoy it. there is something heroic about, inspiring to say the least.

    Today, as we salute
    our
    Flag
    and celebrate
    our
    freedom,
    let us remember its
    price,
    and the Sons
    and Daughters
    who paid
    for it.

    for freedom to truly be cherished one must understand the tremendous cost and sacrifice that was place upon the altar of liberty. men and womens lives! the blood to this day flows...may it never cease to flow in our minds.
    with much gratitude i thank you for this work.
    it is a beautiful write.
