After The Battle

Rating: 4.9
Alas! , the raging battle's done
And morning once again has come
As stillness swathes the bleak horizon o'er
The place where echoes come to strum
Upon the still and silent drum
Heard in the battle just the day before.

Across the scarred and battered fists
Of distant mountains, lies a mist-
A thick, gray cloak of vapor presses still;
Like Death, it rules all Life desist

I gave it a nine because there were things here and there that were not always the best, but overall I thought this was a piece worth reading more than once. That's all it takes. GW62

I don't know why, but there seems to a Scottishness to this piece. (That is a compliment.) Danny
