[ Valentines 2018 ] Purple Hearts

    
Poetry to nurse the wounded    
warriors having stumbled    
upon land mines    
   
shuttled back from Front Lines    
on little red wheelbarrows    
and other assorted    
makeshift carts    
   
Two    
Few    
Brave    
Not so Proud at times    
---we gave it Our all    
   
We continue to give    
despite every failed    
parachute freefall from    
great height above;    
   
still the will to Live    
   
We were born to Love    
   
pressing onward day and night    
on weary feet, wounded knees    
no matter how terrible    
the pain smarts  
   
Fierce the flames of Freedom    
its fanned furnace    
burns within Us    
worthy of these    
Purple Hearts
