A Rather Peculiar Tapestry – A Multiple Word Prompt Poem

Usually, I like a tapestry,
Its rhythmic warp and weft.
It’s something that I love to see,
The few pleasures I have left.

I like to see a rural scene,
All natural and bucolic,
With ducks and geese and trees of green,
Or spring lambs in fields a-frolic.

But I have to say, I’m not quite sure
I like the subject that you’ve chosen,
Oh, I admit you can’t ignore,
the sight of corpses, bare and frozen.

But it’s rather a peculiar thing,
To represent war’s anniversary
To depict the blood and suffering,
Then display it in the nursery.

FOWC with Fandango — Bucolic

 

I wrote this back in April, but today’s Word of the Day is Bucolic, so it fits.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
