SILENCE

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Nov 10, 2017

Silence, Silence, Heads 
bowed low.
Poppies, Poppies. Row
on row.
Scarlet petals, slender 
stem.
'Remember them, 
remember them.'

Toll the bells from
coast to coast,
Muffle drums and
sound the Post.
Accolades and honours
due
To the brave, the best,
the few.

Who, though unseen
now, also stand
Comrades all, in no
man's land.
In Tommy's boots
and pilot's fleece
Those who gave their
lives for peace.

Guarding earth, seas 
and skies
Weep, to witness Hope's
demise,
Allowing heroes' tears
to flow
Upon those poppies
strewn below.

Where bombs explode
and cities burn
As humankind declines
to learn.
Our heroes fought in
true defiance,
Let us now observe
a silence.
