David Blair


Sunrise/Sunset


It was a
beautiful sunrise.
Even in the
muddy trench
he enjoyed it.

The Somme...July 1916.

The sunset was
just as splendid
but he didn't
see it even tho
his eyes were still open.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
