100 Years

1918 - 2018

Marking the end of World War I

Renewal

By Joy Meekings

The grass and flowers have disappeared from the fields that once had plenty
No children laughing, playing games, the fields lie blood-stained and empty.
A terrible battle was fought here, and many young Soldiers were lost
These fields sadly remind us, of what it really cost.
For those who survived the onslaught, their cities decimated,
There will be renewal one day, and their homes recreated.
All the fields will regenerate and become as they were before
But when will we ever learn, and find an alternative to War?

Joy Meekings, 2018
