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)
