Sharpsburg Lament

Stephen Griffin ACWS (UK) site

I lay upon the grass and gaze upon the flowing stream

And wonder at the possibilities of all that could have been

I wanted adventure, glory and honour did I seek

Until it all came tumbling down at Antietam Creek

I can not fathom how this my fate can be

This cannot be the end that the Lord has meant for me

Is it just some horrible, awful – nightmare dream?

I have so much more to do – I am just seventeen

I lay upon the grass and gaze upon the flowing stream

And wonder at the possibilities of all that could have been


Padre
