KETT'S REBELLION

Caribou by Bea Ewart

24th September 2006 The Newfoundlanders' Memorial, The Somme, France.

 

Today sheep graze

in a quiet, shady wood,

safe from the mines close by

that lie in deadly waiting,

hidden beneath soft, green turf,

behind an electric fence.

 

Above them, the caribou's call

is heard by those who lie

across the pitted field,

yards from the trench

that sheltered them

until the whistle blew,

calling them to their fate.

 

Bea Ewart 2006
