A Humble Tribute Poem by Amar Agarwala

A Humble Tribute

Rating: 5.0


A summer day warms up
To a Cenotaph old,
The greens waltzing in joy
For the birds to behold;

Beckoning azure skies
Sear poppies scarlet red,
Saluting patriots
Men who have long been dead.

Sun and moon pay homage
And stars commemorate,
Their past deeds of valour
And sacrifices great.

Here time pauses awhile
To hear winds play a lute,
It is for slain soldiers
Nature's humble tribute.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
RESPECTING SOLDIERS

I wonder how many find time to respect and honour soldiers... courageous men, with large hearts who eschewed the vanities of life so that their nations could live in eternal peace. Had it not been for such gladiators of mankind, this earth would have been far unsafer a place, than we find it today.

Yet, I often feel that nature offers even greater tribute, than what mere mortals do for such patriots. My thoughts are etched in the poem above. Besides, are not poetic verses soulful tribute too...? For even though they are ethereal, they lend fragrance to a past which was bold and honourable for men; who gave up all what they had, so that we could have everything in our lives.
