Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here. It is always fun to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.
This week I am sharing three photos from the Somme American Cemetery in Bony, Aisne, France. (Northern France) This cemetery (post World War I) is owned and maintained by the United States within France. It is particularly connected with the advance of the 27th and 30th Divisions, with the 3rd and 5th Australian, at the end of September, 1918. There are 1837 headstones in the cemetery, including three Medal of Honor headstones. One Medal of Honor headstone is pictured above. On the chapel sidewalk (not pictured) there are 333 names of Missing in Action written as well.
Anyway, with no further adieu, this is one of my favorite spaces to post poetry each week. I hope you look forward to it too. An older one or a new one, it's your choice.
Link your ONE poem. Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets. And I will too. (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others. That is part of the fun as well. We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.
Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new. Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends! Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?
Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week. For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt. Hope you will join us there as well! Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!
If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site. It is one more way to stay in touch!
And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.
