This is the Field where the Battle did not Happen

field by moonlight Veronika Pinke  Field By Moonlight Veronika Pinke on Pixdaus

 This is the field where the battle did not happen,
where the unknown soldier did not die.
This is the field where grass joined hands,
where no monument stands,
and the only heroic thing is the sky.

Birds fly here without any sound,
unfolding their wings across the open.
No people killed – or were killed – on this ground
hollowed by the neglect of an air so tame
that people celebrate it by forgetting its name.

William Stafford
