Over these beauty-strewn flower fields
my heart overwhelmed at last, it yields
to the clamour and the clash of shields
and bombs bursting in air.
And I imagine how the ghouls
of war and battle grab handfuls
of humans gathered here, like fools
to fight for something there
in those fields,
their hearts snatched cruelly from their chest
thrown up, confetti, and the rest
a bloody mass, the reeling guest
of Death astride its Pale Horse…
But now, the field is strewn with flowers,
confetti fell and by Love’s powers
became Her blossoms and Her bowers
of healing evermore
and never again, please,
never again war
In Confetti Fields,
So tragic yet so beautiful, with such an engaging rhythm
…and rhyme scheme. Sorry for the broken post… xxx
