Death In Bloom

It was the 3rd day of the battle,

and thousands lay dying or dead


Lining the edge of the smoke and chaos,

the roses and daisies were spread


The screams in the night were ungodly,

 sounds of cannon fire ruling the day


With blue and grey bleeding side by side

—the flowers in joyous array


(Gettysburg Pennsylvania: March, 2020)
