THE VIEW FROM MY PORCH BY
June 7, 2012
Sitting on my porch has always been a comfort to me. I have been fortunate to have front porches in most of the places I have lived. There is a special peace that comes from sitting on your front porch in your favorite rocker of an evening, being carressed by a warm breeze, listening to crickets and watching lightning bugs flash their lights as they float across the lawn. It gives a person opportunity to think and delve into the mysteries of life.
Tonight I puzzled on why so many people forgot about D Day, which happened 68 years ago, on June 6, 1944. A few people as well as I, posted things on Facebook, but I was amazed at the lack of response from my friends to what I posted. Anyone who watched the movie “Saving Private Ryan” got what I think was a tiny taste of the terror of war. I tried to picture in my mind being on a landing craft as the gate fell and you just start running into Hell on Earth. You run on fear and guts. You are in red water and stepping in guts, and you make it to something that protects you, or maybe you find you’re laying in the sand with no legs…….or if you are lucky there is suddenly silence and the blackness of death.
In 1995 I wrote a poem after watching programs on D-Day and the end of World War II. I hope you like it.
REFLECTIONS AFTER FIFTY YEARS
All material is copyrighted 1995-2012 Henry H. George
Fifty years of silence, beginning to fade.
They speak for those who cannot speak from the grave.
I see them on programs about D-Day, VE-Day and VJ-Day.
They try to speak of the unspeakable
That they have lived with for fifty years or more,
And as they try to talk now, for the first time,
They falter, their voices fall silent;
as tears fall down emotion wracked faces
For comrades they saw die those long years ago.
I was just a child when they went off to war.
They finally came home and started families,
Friends and neighbors who are with us today.
But I, like they, wonder about families never started
Who might have been my friends today
They say they are not heroes, and maybe that is true,
But I bow to them all in homage,
Both the living and the dead,
As wrapped in fear and terror, they fought
That I would be free.
I have been honored to kneel at the wall
And touch the name of a childhood friend;
And though not knowing any of those asleep
For half a century or more,
Stood among the thousands in the Cambridge-American
Cemetery in England, tears filling my eyes
For those who had fallen for me.
I always knew if I ever got the chance,
I would go where they are
To honor them and say a prayer
That could not be said as a child.
To those of you who yet live, I hope you will understand
That just as you can’t find the words to speak
Of what you lived through,
I will never find the words to express my feelings
Of thankfulness and respect for you.
It is here in my heart and in tears
On a far away grave.
