Remembering Vietnam


Today I remember
someone I met;
Back in October
We were a sure bet.
But time would not allow
Us to become one
You see he was an Army fellow
I gave him a son.
The memories he gave me
I shall always treasure
It's just a matter of time
We will be together, I'm sure.

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.
