Gone for soldiers, every one.
I love "Demonstrations rooted in love", Helen. Very nice!
You make a lovely rhythm here, Helen, songlike echoes of another time.
If I had remembered that song I would have used it for my poem. I used to sing it incessantly as a child.
gimme a little acoustic guitar behind this and all of us sitting in a circle...very nice...where have they gone...
Where have all the flowers gone? If you're going to demonstrate, why not do so in the name of love!!
Flowers symbolize peace. Love the line best ~
Enjoyed that Helen, and it was an angle on the prompt that I wasn't expecting at all. Poignant but not overdone.
Beautiful words. Yes the flowers are all gone. As soon all of us who wore those flowers in our hair will be.Excellent poem.Melanie
The Flower Children are still here, aren't we!But flowers in barrels or not, the guns were the first response of a regime that saw the people as the enemy. PS Chrome working. Fast and so far bug free!!! Yahoooo! Sorry, that's the opposition.
