You have entered my realm of poetry
Where my heart and hand collide
Emotions from the oceans of life
Are waiting for you inside!
"Read from some humbler poet
whose songs gushed from his heart,
as showers from the clouds of summer,
or tears from the eyelids start;
Who, through long days of labor,
and nights devoid of ease,
still heard in his soul the music
of wonderful melodies."
--Excerpt From: "The Day is Done"
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

These next five war poems were written in my response to Gary Jacobson's Vietnam Picture Tour, where he has graciously flattered me by posting them to the poetry section of his moving website. Any of the next five links will take you to his site.....the Vietnam War as seen through the lens and poet's pen of a combat infantryman, with background music and action photos from the Vietnam War era.
Before you go, please bookmark this page so you can find your way back to read more of my poetry, especially the latest favorite of my readersBehind Those Eyes, a poem in support of the Coalition Soldiers fighting in Iraq.

In my continuing effort to write on the effects of war, I invite you to visit the International War Veterans' Poetry Archives (IWVPA) of which I am very proud to be a member. The poetry on this site is a vast collection of poetry and prose composed and sent in by authors from every corner of the globe. I encourage you to spend some time here reading the poems on war, for war affects everyone to one degree or another.
My deepest gratitude goes to Anthony "Bushranger" Pahl, Australian Vietnam Veteran, talented and distinguished poet and former Door-Gunner with the RAAF, for his tireless efforts in designing and maintaining the archives.
