The Battle for Life – of Life (A Villanelle Structured Poem)


 
~~~~~ 

He lays forlorn on a battlefield over there, 
With wounded and fatality all around; 
It's agony perishing alone with abounding despair. 

The stench of battle permeating the air, 
His field of honor scorched and brown; 
He lays forlorn on a battlefield over there. 

They attacked in snow extreme cold to bare, 
Defended in rain heavy enough to drown; 
It's agony perishing alone with abounding despair. 

So many gallant men he cannot compare, 
Friends, comrades of trials - many gunned down; 
He lays forlorn on a battlefield over there. 

God help us all is his dying prayer, 
And returned thanks for the grace of love he's found; 
It's agony perishing alone with abounding despair. 

As his last moments slips by with tender care, 
It's only the body he commits to the grave-mound. 
He lays forlorn on a battlefield over there. 
It's agony perishing alone with abounding despair. 
~~~~~
