100 Years

1918 - 2018

Marking the end of World War I

Sounds of War

By Colleen Dewis

Weary women weeping, children sleeping.
Soldiers cursing, crying, praying, God-seeking.
Wounded lying dying, sighing, trenches seeping.
Bayonets, guns, bullets, bombs.
Leaders meet to make a choice,
heed the wise united voice.
Sign! No winners, all rejoice
At last the Armistice!

Colleen Dewis, 2018
