Beautiful rhyme and meter, this poem simply falls off the tongue. When I come across a poem like this that is so effortless to read, I find the impact of the message that much stronger. When I have visited such places as this, where men have fought and died and you stand where they stood, there are brief moments when you feel transported back in time and you stand in their footprints. That is what I sense when I read your poem. It doesn’t happen that often but when it does it’s an eerie yet exhilarating experience. Beneath the rhyme and meter you created wonderful imagery and took me there, Thanks for the journey.
