Written by Richard AnkersAugust 23, 2014 Crying for the Lost She wept by the grave Of an unknown soldier’s rest For all, the same loss When shared soil unites And the mothers are grieving They cry for all sons (I wrote two and couldn’t decide which to post. So, here’s both) Share this:FacebookTwitterStumble MeWhatsAppTumblrLinkedInRedditTelegramPinterestPocketPrintEmailLike this:Like Loading... 14 thoughts on “Crying for the Lost” And I like both . . .so touching! Thank you, Richard! Reply Thanks, Debbie. I wouldn’t do that normally as I write so many but my head was a bit in the clouds today. Reply Yea 😦 very sad for the mothers and even dads > Reply Yes, well said Reply More salient today than you possibly know particularly the latter but both a beautifully penned as always Reply They’re both beautiful and in fact, they read as one poem. Reply My Uncle was in the Vietnam war and he didn’t come back and my mom said she remembers that knock at the door. My mom still has the flag they gave her. There a whole story behind it your poem reminded me of this! Odd how something we read brings events to the forefront of our minds! I guess that’s what memories are all about so we never forget! 😀 Beautiful Richard! Reply I know you asked for a this or that answer but this is what I honestly think. How about: She wept by the grave – Of an unknown soldier’s rest – And cries for all sons. She = all mothers and unknown soldier = all soldiers. Still 5,7,5 sounds. Reply I like it, Laine. Very good. Reply (((Awhoooo))) (((Awhoooo))) Reply A double howl, or is there more than one of you? Reply Oh there is only one Sir Richard. Don’t know if the world can handle two of me. At least that’s what lady wolf says. LOL 😦 anything to do with mothers weeping is enough to make have sad face. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
