Old Comrades
I walked among my comrades brave,
upon that bloody hill
and saw no movement, none at all,
for it was deathly still.
There were no cries
from trembling lips,
no soldier's blasphemy.
I call their names out, every one,
but no one answered me.

I know each rock,
each clump of trees
that marks this hallowed ground
for in my mind I see them fall
and hear that battle sound.
But now the silence
takes my breath
for all that I can see
are rows on rows of crosses
where old comrades used to be.

Thomas Lynn
Korean War Veteran
