A little toy cannon

Sitting on my shelf.

Remembering days past

When they were the real thing.


Still can hear them

In their seranade of booms.

Not much sleep to such music-

Bringing back the horrors of war.

War is a horror, my late husband had nightmares
He could not even sit with his back to a door
He always had to be facing it with his back to
the wall

It's hard to imagine what it was that like to charge across a battlefield armed only with a musket, saber or knife, facing cannon fire. The sound of the projectiles alone would elicit enough fear to stop the charge. Glad that I only heard them at celebrations and the time one scared the hell out of me announcing the evening at Fort Santiago, Manila, the Philippines.

You brought up the fact, George, that the innocent little cannon was a harbinger of something very bad.
