Sign Upor Sign In
Marching brown rows, furrow-filled fields
mirror stone ranks of white.
Seeded by death, war's bloody yield -
a harvest culled by Night.
And death by day Hope, love and life, All strangled by war Nothing but the deathly cries of silence were left Brave warriors hoping for life Rivers red, Fields feared Bombs erasing hope from the minds of men By Cate, Ana and Aanya, International School of Cape Town
Soldiers marched with guns at their grip
Striding together in rows of ten
Helping their country, loading the ship
Heroes of war fighting again
Heads held high; filled with grief
Not waiting for a fight
Surrounded by belief
Not an enemy in sight
Waiting within the night
Goosebumps bound to arise
Eyes closing as the very slight
Dreams haunt him with her cries
Awoken by fear
Her not to be harmed
Not like last year
To come home and not be alarmed
“Please” he sobbed
“She’s done no wrong “
“My heart‘s the only thing she’s robbed”
“She finds it hard to be strong”
“Especially as I’m gone”

She Wept, she sobbed, she craved his love Searching for a sign from heavens above "My love you must return to me" She cried and waved him off "My dear I cannot leave you" And then the van took off She stayed at home, dreading the call "M'am, he's gone for good" She curled up on her side of the bed Sinking in; She's lost it all
Daisy, West Kirby Residential School
She looks to the skies and wonders ,
How he was at the end .
Was he scared, when he went under?
Did he have to defend ?
Was he tired, or sick or in pain?
Did he see the great bomb,
That ended his brief life in vain?
And now, her love is gone.
Is his young spirit resting now?
On the blood-stained war-ground?
How much torture did he allow,
Before he was shot down?
She thinks about all this and cries.
She cries the pain away.
How long is it until she dies?
She feels dead anyway.
Issy and Miranda,
Robert May's School
