I found this to be particularly emotional. I shed a tear and composed this short poem.
Here is my poem composed on Wednesday May 18th, 20111
Her Majesty Visits the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin May 2011
So much blood and so many tears
have been shed through the years
Today we stare in awe
but feelings are still quite raw
Hearts maimed, battered and broken
children felt what our parents left unspoken.
We speak a language that the stranger does not know
then how can they understand us.
Tread softy Your Majesty as you meet and greet
St. Patrick and the shamrock will guide your sacred feet
of is it (feat, fete)
