A Children’s Crusade



They sing a mournful song,
In the hours before the dawn,
They march in rank procession.
Through the land of desolation,
The lonely sons and daughters,
Of forgotten generations,
The one lost tribe,
Scattered through the nations.
The End
Finis

  1. I wish I had a better understanding of poems. But I do get that this is a very well written poem. It makes me feel almost sad, and yet I don't quite understand what it means. I have a guess, but I'm not possitive... sorry. I don't mean to offend if I am. You write very well, I just have limited vocabulary... :/

  2. As always, you're able to say so much in so little. Its a gift many don't have and your talent in writing just makes it shine brighter than the contrasting colors of this page. Great poem wolf.

  3. Thank you all for your wonderful ccomments I'm genuinly touched. I guess its about whetever you want it to be,like all poems. The title 'Childrens Crusade' refers to an incident during the middle ages in which thousands of children formed a crusade to fight in the holy land. Most of them perished of hunger, were murdered. eaten, or sold into slavery. They never reached the Holy Land. So a Childrens Crusade is a hopeless endevour I guess.
