    War In Eye Of Soldier

    Waves lap against our boat
    As we wait in the cold.
    Wrap ourselves in our coat,
    Waiting for the order to be told.

    The Sacrifices Of Soldiers

    I pledge allegiance to the American Flag; forever may she wave.
    God bless those covered with her as they're lowered to their grave.
    We must not take for granted the freedoms that we share
    and the soldiers that protect us in our darkest hour.

    A Forgotten Veteran

    Driving home one day after hours of monotonous office work,
    Saw a man sitting by the road; looked as one down on his luck.

    He was just another beggar holding out a shiny tin cup.

    Those that I guard I do not love;

    Turmoil covers my eyes and my heart.
    It never leaves me in day or dark.

    Thoughts Of A Soldier Going Off To War

    How blue are the eyes of my darling
    And warm are her lips ruby red.
    How white are her arms of enchantment
    That beckon me into her bed.

  11. Beat! Beat! Drums!

    Beat! beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow!
    Through the windows—through doors—burst like a ruthless force,

    Into the school where the scholar is studying,

    Running through the battlefield, bracing for the bang.
