Honor – © 1972

A very short poem about parents sending their son to war.

One of many “4 line poems” (actually 2 lines without the formatting. lol) My attempts to convey as much as possible with few words.

Honor – © 1972

Yes, they had turned and parted,
And promised not to cry.
The mom and dad went sadly home.
Their son went out to die.
