Festival Haiku - The Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival, Moscow Red Square


International Military Music Festival
courage and patriotism
fire up every tune

International Military Music Festival
every tune shines with
a country's heart

International Military Music Festival
every tune the beat
of a nation's heart

International Military Music Festival
our courage rises
with the beats

International Military Music Festival
smart are the men
out of war

International Military Music Festival
so many songs, so many lives
lost and saved

International Military Music Festival
matching songs and poems
intertwine in our heart
