Army Of Tombstones - Poem by Lyn Paul

Play Poem Video

As I sit with peace the sun is out
Very few people walking about
The trees to the music of the wind are blowing
The birds are singing, the crows are crowing
The sunshine is radiant with the open air
I feel so at peace like, without a care
The grass is kept so green, so alive
There are thousands of roses a beauty of colour all to thrive
The monuments, the tombstones reflect beauty and love
With the deceased now resting somewhere above
Above yet the beauty of the cemetery will remain
Above where... there is no pain
So as I sit here in peace surrounded by tombstones
I do not think of the coffin, nor of the bones
I think of these people that put their mark on this earth
The History here, from today since birth
So the birds are tweeting a heavenly song
With This Army Of Tombstones that have been together for so long

    It is best to think on the bright side in such situations as death. There always is one. (Report) Reply

    A brilliant write Lyn you set the scene so vividly, creating a serene feeling of been in a special place where people are at rest and their souls up above surrounded by God's love! (Report) Reply

    A fine descriptive poem of the landscape and the place and commemoration of the people and their lives now remembered at rest in such peaceful surrounds. Well written. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem Lyn, and certainly does not offend. A cemetery is a place of peace and memories, and you have captured that well here. (Report) Reply

    It's an absolutely magnificent poem! 10/10.
    While reading the poem, I was feeling as if I was sitting there! This is the success of a poet, to draw an imagery so spot on, that the readers just cannot but be with him/her.

    You have touched my heart with these lines, Lyn! (Report) Reply
