John McChord


What sweeter

Trade or swords to shovels

And the fields of war to blooming flower

Canon fodder to orchards

The sons of man, they remember their fathers

And I am no more than leaving

Leaves who’s turning brings brighter years


  • L. B. Mek

    well written
    indeed, that's what rests in the hearts
    of all those hopeful parents
    and heroes that willingly toil and sacrifice
    believing, and intrusting in us who survive them:
    'Leaves who’s turning brings brighter years'
    (thanks for sharing)
