Patriots Gather

Patriots Gather

A Poem by Diane Lockard

Patriots versus British - fighting for freedom....


Patriots Gather


Whispering to each other, three Patriots appear


Crossing the rocky stream; vents of steam puffing from


The ground. A beaver dam and sycamore trees


Cloaked in darkness, foggy apparrtions.


Arrive at camp, everyone bustles about…


“British looking for our friends. We need to move out,


Roll the barrels to the wagons,” horses neigh.


Patriots gather, stars, pinpoints of light guide their way.


“We march for freedom,” in the days to come

They win the battle and the fighting is done

Even though British - English, no less.. I see the fine use of your given words wrapped very carefully and usefully in such a cohesive tale. You've converted a discipline into a well metered display. Diane.
