“Soldiers Come in All Sizes”

Contemplative Poetry – Inspirational Poetry


dVersePoets Pub – Memorial Day Prompt

hosted by Victoria C Slotto


victoria has a wonderful poem from walt whitman, plus reminds us of the variety of poets that have written work honoring those who fight to preserve their homes and families :

“William Shakespeare, Wilfred Owens, Robinson Jeffers, Walt Whitman, Carl Sandburg, Matthew Arnold, Rudyard Kipling, Anne Sexton, William Blake and Randall Jarrell.”

and ends with this well said line :

“Go out and enjoy the day, whether you live in a country that celebrates Memorial Day or not.”

my poem is for the relationship between the soldier, any one of us, and the society we live within….


Soldiers Come in All Sizes


not that long ago

hordes rode the ridge

flashing steel

and death

the child

as much as the woman

with the man

scurried to defend


soldiers are defenders

of a way of life

and life



to preserve the soldier

willing to give the only thing

we know for sure

our breath


way of life


must defend the values of our soldiers

About Me




    • thank you victoria 😉

      yea, people forgot sometimes, soldiers volunteer or are drafted to defend a way of life, and if that way of life doesn’t do its part to maintain the integrity to justify killing or being killed, then it’s not reasonable for society to have the type of soldiers it needs, when it needs them

      luckily, our own society, despite its flaws, still can openly even discuss things like this; it is to our credit 😉

      thanks again victoria, i appreciate it 😉


  1. a soldier is one that defends a way of life…in a sense we are all soldiers in that regard and should stay ever vigilant…i am glad we have those that are willing…


    • “in a sense we are all soldiers in that regard” – absolutely!

      and vigilance, i’ve heard, is the price of freedom

      and we have a nation of willing…

      when we know it’s a true fight

      thank you so much brian 😉
