How will I, with justice, cross these fields in words and not trample “what they did here?” Perfect in architecture: Hills rising from valleys, Streams rising from beds, God-like boulders rising from everywhere What was once all the dead and the dying now green with the living or flowing with life How will I not return to death the sacred memories still walking, maybe sill warring back and forth across these grounds? Now is not the time to blanket dismiss or tear apart (there are “facts” no one agrees upon) But close your eyes with me I am not your historian. I am no Coddington, Gallhager or Dreese. I am your poet Like you, I am only trying to understand that fleeting, that fading near silly concept dripping questions eternal and groping for more details There are 160,000 primary sources still hovering over and within but this is not one of them This is my life spent in awe all near tears wandering Gettysburg This is my plate offered yes humbly, for you Take eat, this is my life as much as it is yours
