Subject(s): Mourning; War; Bereavement

Poor Lucy never laughed much after that.
Half-captured happiness had left a scar,
A hidden woman's heritage of war
Seared in her tired heart. All day she sat
Finding a thousand foolish things to do,
Little loving things, inconsequential,
But she had lost, you see, the one essential
Thing in life, which changed her point of view.

And Lucy said, "They will remember Jim,
When I am trodden dust his very name
Will be a watchword and a battle hymn,
An inspiration and a secret flame."
So musing she would smile, a little sadly,
And then continue knitting, rather badly.
