Remembering……..

November wind
leaves the year’s end
shredded to rags,
pruned branches
for bonfires.
Coloured stars
against the night’s back-drop
mere illusions of merriment.

The usual mist
a pall
to drape the Cenotaph
and a thousand village greens
stained with blood-red poppies.

Those old enough
for torn memories
stop the year,
stand grey-haired
to the autumn chill;

for those who are too young
gratitude hangs
like tattered regimental flags
in a cathedral.

Some hearts still ache —
lives pocked with craters
where love might have been —
blitzed promises and unborn hopes.

It is freedom we reap;
the price rocketed.
Concrete and glass have grafted
obvious scars,
but somewhere
in distant farmlands
ploughed into battlefields
acre upon acre —
the harvest of white crosses.

Cecily Taylor
