A wound still healing

A wound still healing

A Poem by Wolf

The sounds of war long since past,

yet we hear the cannon fire still.

46,000 casualties many sons and fathers,

Many forgotton heros.


brother against brother, fathers against sons.

a deadly dance across the field and in the woods.

Many a day i sit back and think about those men,

How they suffered how they died.


Ghosts from the past still wonder those feilds,

Looking for missing limbs or missing freinds.

Remeber these men and their sacrifice for freedom,

keep the memory of Gettysburg alive.

I have a friend that would probably like this one, Coyote Poetry. He's written many pieces about past wars and such. The Battle of Gettysburg is one of my favorite battles of the Civil War. Yes I agree that we should remember those who died for a cause that determined the lives of the people they were fighting for. This great piece of yours really helped me appreciate the soldiers that fight for me and you. Thank you for the RR.

I really like this poem. My father's father's father died in a camp of fever during the civil war. My one question is did you mean wonder or wander in this sentence :)

Ghosts from the past still wonder those feilds,

My dad lived in Jonesville, Va. Another civil war battle where men died over a few feet of land. A lot of people died to keep us uniformed and together. Those old Battle grounds still of the feel of sadness and blood. Thank you for the excellent poem.
