In Memory of my Grandfather

On Thiepvals Walls, a Remembrance of my Grandfather

On Thiepvals walls a cold wind blows caressing names that no one knows

some who remembered have gone themeselves, lives blunted then by

wars travails

but some names shown still tug a heart when november comes with its

cruel barbed shaft

dear grandad, you never knew my kiss but that does not mean I love you

less

you gave me life, so you and I, we share our bones, where'er your lie




In memory of MICHAEL O'SULLIVAN

22782, 1st Bn., Border Regiment

who died age 40, this day, 25th October 1916
