War has come this morning – a poem

by Jun 1, 2004Poetry

“War has come this morning
Death shall be this day,
Hours of battle shall linger
The sun will swift away.

And when the armies ride forth
To meet our darkest foe,
The fear within their hearts
Will pass and anger show.

Stand now, men of honour
And do what must be done,
Defeat the mighty darkness
Or face the ending doom.

But if we now should fail
To defend and to stand strong,
Could we endure this loss
And know the right from wrong?

If night then follows the evening
What kind of night shall come?
Will stars shine through the darkness
Or be forever gone?

And if the night is followed by dawn
For so we must believe,
What would we gain with victory
But death and great deceive?

So if we all pass, and pass we shall
What would we leave behind?
And shall we see the white shores fair?
And the light the trees entwined?

If you gaze in distance
You can see it there,
The sun above the clouds
Always shining fair.

So stand now, men of honour
And do what must be done,
Defeat the mighty darkness
So we can see the rising sun.”

I´d love comments and criticism, this is the first poem I´ve published so i´m a bit nervous.
Love
