Theirs not to make reply
Theirs not to reason why
Theirs but to do and die

Tennyson


InTheir Deaths They Were Not Divided  

After the battle, thick upon the plain
The bodies of soldiers slain were lying.
Wounded were moaning in their greater pain
For duty dying

In the last state in which all men are equal,
Resting at length together, hate defied,
Death its sequel.

All they had fought for - fleeting earthly gain
Now was forgotten, peace their souls had filled.
Cared not that it may have been in vain

The blood they had spilled.
Resting in peace, their mortal warfare over
They wait their judgment at the throne of Grace.

Equal - at last, now standing before
Halo’s of love they see God's face!

A tribute to the souldiers that never made it home.

Isn't that the thing then? Cannot soldiers return from whence they've been? In the arena of the dead all are the same as you said. Mortal enemies to the death, until each have run out of breath.

Dear Berly, Your poem, "In Their Deaths They Were Not Divided" touches the heart and comforts the soul. I was statined in the U.K. many moons ago and I loved how my friends there recollect WWII as it it were yesterday. I salute you for supporting and remembering the scrafices of our soldiers. Happy New Year! John Michael Domino
