WW1 poem

Here we lie lifeless and still
In the middle of Flanders fields
Where poppies flow and the sunset glows
Where we forever hold our peace.

We were so free just moments ago
But I put my best foot forward
To try out this quick and lifeless test
For an exciting  but terrifying adventure.

Will you carry on with my quest
And do try your best
As I shall lay here in my rest
Lifeless in this field but so happy and free
If you complete my quest.

  1. This was a very powerful piece of writing told from an interesting perspective. The poem's rhythm flowed well. I thought some lines were especially well thought out; i liked 'To try out this quick and lifeless test'
