Freedom


Freedom,
defined by force,
to die for the cause,
is what the soldier supports,

Freedom,
defined by society,
to a grander cause,
the soldier come upon,

Freedom,
defined by religion,
Jesus died in its name,
put on the cross was he,

Freedom,
one the cross,
the other on the battlefield!
did they die in vain?

Freedom,
defined by song,
Jesus n' the soldier did sing,
your soul, one died for, the latter let freedom ring!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
