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 Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

Two more so tenderly complete:
