Poetry holds within
Freedom to a slave
Verse of words
Tremors of the brave

Life is worth a poppy
To the protected and the safe
Never knowing death upon them
As the souls who give them faith

A letter to a bride I read
From a generation passed
A young man for his country
His future, a mold to cast

His love for her unspoken
Until a letter set them free
Not knowing if he would ever
To his beloved a husband be

I’m not really a poetry person, but Remembrance Day was a bit of inspiration to add to this thread.
