This particular poem was written with the battle Beaumont Hammel in mind where over 800 young Newfoundland soldiers in WWII were sent over the hill wave after wave to be mowed down by enemy machine guns. I couldn't help but think of all the young girls who lost their young men in that battle...


Mists of Time

On the mists of time she kneeled

Praying for the minutes to pass

The ravens kept a vigil with her

Wild flowers scented morning grass

 

Her beau had donned the khaki

To fight for the Kings Brigade

A 303 rifle replaced his plow share

Was told there was a price to be paid

 

She cried the day he shipped out

His chest puffed out with pride

The world was at war for freedom

She had to hide how much she cried

 

Days, weeks, then months went by

Till they all turned into years

She read all his letters one by one

Returned hers signed with tears

 

It was in the third year she got the word

His father came on her to call

With tears in his eyes and heavy heart

He said my son in battle had to fall

 

She never got to say goodbye to him

Only a faded picture and his memory

She kneels lost in the mist of time

Her ravens there to keep her company…

Beautifully penned, but oh how terribly sad this is, Fee. The lovely picture is captured by your words.....This kind of tragedy continues, and suffering will go on....we haven't learned a single thing, have we?

Hugs,
Anna

how sorrowing to be left with such permanence
and never having the embrace so utterly important
when it's time to say good bye...

Definitely touches the heart, Fee. Beautifully written. Isn't it sad to think that it holds just as true today as it did then? I wish there was peace, always. ~Elizabeth

the mist of time consumes us all -- shame that many young men were consumed long before they knew manhood,love and children -- a sobering work Felix -- but a story that needed to be shared so all will not forget, the costs that all of the brave young men have borne o'er the years for the freedoms will enjoy -- may peace and love be always with you my friend -- Jon Michael

Bittersweet historical recount, Mists of Time is a piece of relevant poetry, Felix...it's what I love about your poetry, it takes us to the battle scenes so often of life and always with a heart so remembered in whatever you write...it's a good balance...be well.

Love,
Sage

Felix, this tears the heart out of me for there were so many and still today, they are still sending them into hell to take their last breaths, so many young children who will never know their parents.
