THOUGHTS AT CHRISTMAS (2)

In sad November, we are told, when watching poppies fall

Each represents a life surrendered answering duty's call;

And when in deep December the snow flakes fill the sky,

I'm filled with thoughts of all the souls whose time had come to fly

Each born with the chance to live a life and manifest its worth

Until the hour when each would fall and fade back in the earth.

Very poignant, MC. I particularly like the phrase "manifest its worth".

Sad thing is, there are still plenty of tyrants around who will demand the deaths of young men. Mugabe, Kim Jong-un to name but two . .

That's a lovely thought, so profound, and "Christmas puddingly", rich in content
