Footprints - Poem by Barbara Moyer

Cold grey marble
Soldiers erect,
displaying
their
etches.
Black withered roses
bow heads,
praying in
silence.
Embedded footprints
crackling frost,
leaving
powdered
dust.

    I believe I have been here! At least it conjures up a moment from my past in D.C. You have a beautiful talent. Barbara (Report) Reply
