An anti-war poem from an anti-war era.


Feather

 
Bring me my arrow as the battle has begun
The warfield will be clustered with the blood of ally and foe
In my foxhole I will stand alone breathing
As the mortar ruptures the sky I will put down my weapon
Take hold of a feather and then climb into full view
I will march with my feather and I will cross enemy lines
If they want to kill me, let them
I stand alone
Free of all nations’ flags I carry my own banner
A feather
With this feather I shall sprout wings and fly
Out onto the peaceful skies of serenity shall I soar
And I will claim no allegiance with any man and all man shall do the same to me.
Storyteller On The Lake

Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis
I absolutely love this - the courage to stand alone for that which lies within our hearts is, perhaps, the greatest courage of all. The imagery in this one reminds me of the old photograph with the individual standing in front of a tank. So moving.
