Normandy Beaches: Feelings and Textures of War

 Arromanches     Remains of Mulberry Harbor

The poets arrived
to view 
trails and tangles of blood and tears
They cradled arms, legs, statues broken open
Syllables flew from the shatter
Verbs to ease the pain
Nouns fired by spirit
They asked, "When will we learn?"
