THE BOOMING GUNS FALL SILENT

The booming guns fall silent
All along the western front
As the dawn breaks and
In dimly lights trenches
Men pass the time in silence,
Alone among the throng
With their own thoughts
Or speaking silently to God
But in the silent waiting
Nerves jangle until the whistles blow
And up they go, over the top
As bullets sing their deadly song
And reap a bitter harvest
But the stalwarts strive on
A deliberate course sustained
Unwavering, toward the foe
Across the battle scarred field
Amidst smoke and shell
Where the acrid scented air
Stings the eyes and fills the nostrils
As concussive blast assail the ears
But onward, ever onward
The stalwarts strive on
Not though in the footsteps of heroes
For these heroes are making
The footprints in the mud
That others must follow
