Best Poem of Gary Fellows

Boy Soldier

Inspired by research into my grandfather's brother, who fell on 9th October 1917. Thought I would submit this today as it is Remeberance Sunday.


A harsh breeze blows on their soft faces
No trees left for wind to whistle through
The Captain’s blow redresses the deficit
Orders from above or rather from behind

Down the wire the signals come
On the wire their lives balance precariously
But to reach those barbs they will fail today
Three weeks of rain await decisions insane

The first battle of Passchendaele doth wait
A third attempt on the Ypres ...

Read the full of Boy Soldier

Alone Again

Like lots of tomorrows
We beat at this world
Pent up, wrenched up
With time we’re all spent up

Blind in thought
Lost in drapes
Drooping down within our minds
Reality escapes
