We try Cinquain ... we prepare to spend a day at a one room school and we try our hand at poetry to place with our poppy wreaths on the wall outside our classroom door. The names we are using are the ones for the children we will portray during our visit. As we read Flander's Field in class one child remarked, "this is really a sad poem." It is.


My Uncle William Pearce DSC lies with his comrades in France.




Sorrow
Veteran's Day
Celebrate the honor
Exceptional sadness, hurt,pain
Sadness

--- Guy (Grandfather is a vet)




Silence
Veteran's Day
Celebration honor
Express the sadness, pain, hurt
Quiet

---- Minnie (Grandfather is a vet)




Sadness
Honor, Celebration
Pain, Exceptional Sadness
Sorrow

---- Martha (Papa was a vet)




Flanders
Silent Day
Celebrate, honor
Pain, Extraordinary sadness
Field

--- Dora




Sadness
Honor, Celebrate Day
Veteran's empty spot; Pain
Lonely

--- Bay




Silent
Honor Day
Veteran Celebrate Now
Sadness, Pain, Exceptional Hurt
Quiet

Effie

Sadness, quiet, pain--but veterans also show us how to <i>honor country and each other. </i> Beautiful haiku!

Ohhhh I love the veteran's Empty Spot. Hit home hard.

How perceptive each child is.
My Great uncle was killed 2:10 pm oct 13 1915 at the battle of Loos,
Same day as Kipplings son in the same battle, due to lack of a smoke screen...
