Dead Man's Dump


The plunging limbers over the shattered track
Racketed with their rusty freight,
Stuck out like many crowns of thorns,

    It is a tragedy to remember or imagine the fear and death of man in cold blood and the poet in his imagination created the story in a specific event and it is a success. (Report) Reply

    My first thought is that this author certainly witnessed this event, for I don't think a person writing in fantasy could describe the intricacies such as the mules bellies shaking in fear, perhaps with each gun shot, or blasting shell. And to correlate so beautifully the difference between the extreme loss of life, decay, and the subtleness with which they resume their part within the earth again, and to those still living who can not understand, can not know, what awaits them - but mere funeral pyre - absolutely breath taking. This is a flower peteled path through a most horid event witnessed by Mr. Rosenberg. Immaculate. And the least of which I expected, especially considering the length of this poem. Generally I haven't the patience for something so long, but this wonderful use of imagery and substance kept me on to the very end... I'll be reading more of Mr. Rosenbergs works I assume.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
