On Veteran’s Day

There’s an abundance of WWI poet that captured their experiences so that they hit home for us all.

Mixed Media

WWI inspired poets including John McCrae, Wilfred Owens, Siegfried Sassoon, Alan Seeger and more. Today I’m sharing some videos of wonderful poems we all should know. They bring home the reality of war, the sacrifice of soldiers.

Poem of the Week

Diaarmament

By John McCrae

One spake amid the nations, “Let us cease
From darkening with strife the fair World’s light,
We who are great in war be great in peace.
No longer let us plead the cause by might.”

But from a million British graves took birth
A silent voice — the million spake as one —
“If ye have righted all the wrongs of earth
Lay by the sword! Its work and ours is done.”
