Under Construction 



            Alfred Lord Tennyson


Sunset and evening star

And one clear call for me

And may there be no moaning of the bar!

When I put out to sea.


But such a tide as moving seems asleep

Too full of sound and foam

When that which drew from out of the

    boundless deep

Turns again home


Twilight and evening bell,

And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

When I embark


For though from our bourne of Time and Place

The flood may bear me far

I hope to see my Pilot face to face

When I have crossed the bar.


While standing by your grave
I read the words etched in stone.
“Killed In Action in the July Drive,
But You Did Not Die Alone!

When the orders were given
For you to go over the top.
How sad you must have felt
To watch your comrades drop!

When the bullets pierced your skin
And before taking your last breath,
Did you have a chance to pray
Before your rendevouz with death?

Oh, dear soldier, loyal and brave
Are you now at peace?
Do you have a restless soul
That will rest when all wars have ceased?
