  13. A truly wonderful poem of the cost of war and remembrance:

     

    The Gift of India

    by Sarojini Naidu (India, 1915)

    Is there ought you need that my hands withhold,
    Rich gifts of raiment or grain or gold?
    Lo! I have flung to the East and the West
    Priceless treasures torn from my breast,
    And yielded the sons of my stricken womb
    To the drum-beats of the duty, the sabers of doom.
    Gathered like pearls in their alien graves
    Silent they sleep by the Persian waves,
    Scattered like shells on Egyptian sands,
    They lie with pale brows and brave, broken hands,
    they are strewn like blossoms mown down by chance
    On the blood-brown meadows of Flanders and France
    Can ye measure the grief of the tears I weep
    Or compass the woe of the watch I keep?
    Or the pride that thrills thro' my heart's despair
    And the hope that comforts the anguish of prayer?
    And the far sad glorious vision I see
    Of the torn red banners of victory?
    when the terror and the tumult of hate shall cease
    And life be refashioned on anvils of peace,
    And your love shall offer memorial thanks
    To the comrades who fought on the dauntless ranks,
    And you honour the deeds of the dauntless ones,
    Remember the blood of my martyred sons!

    Weekly Wrap Up Nov 4 - Nov 10

    Thanks for the Remembrance Day piece, @wildone. We also remember Canada's Hundred Days ... 8 August to 11 November, 1918.
  15. You fought, Young men with lives to live. You fought, In horrors we imagine only. You fought, Bravely, over the top to die. You fought, For our freedom, at the cost of your own. When the larks fly; and as the poppies grow; We remember you. —lest we forget—
