You can tell he was also a painter. From the way this poem is written, it’s obvious he writes with a paint brush. The images he paints with his pen force his readers to see the scene in a way that makes it more vivid. And horrific. And not just from one angle. We see the scene first through the eyes of someone carrying wire up the line on limbers and running over dead bodies, then we see it through the eyes of a dying man, and finally we see it from the limber-driver's perspective again. The view from the dying soldier's eyes is particularly disturbing. It is the wagon wheels, the mules' hooves and quivering bellies we see from ground level upwards. The reader won’t easily forget this haunting poem.
........just finished his statement of biography and true it says, he enlisted....and sadly later passed away at the age of 28, and was first buried in a mass grave himself...until later identified ★
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.
Compliments of the day to you.
