You almost feel the emotions of soldier carrying a wounded warier when reading the words. Very poignant and well balanced poem. Enjoyed reading it but with heavy heart.

I admired your Rondeau with its rhyme scheme and refrain. Your use of the first person and "dusty road" metaphor add to the immediacy of your poem. Thank you for your tribute to our soldiers and your family's sacrifice. Congratulations on your winning the contest with this splendid entry- Joan

Well done with this piece Liberty Justice. I loved the fact that you were able to tap into the soldier's spirit of self less ness and camaraderie when it comes to how they are able assist one another in their times of trouble. Your poem has a wonderful refrain with the " Carry my brother's heavy burden" which serves your theme of self sacrificing for the good of your fellow man very well. Keep up the great work.

Hello, great Rondeau for the competition, and best of luck with this well-written entry. The poem followed a strict form, so well done with that. I noticed no errors and found your author notes interesting. It is wonderful that you have such an affiliation with the services.

Thanks for sharing your poetry, which was a pleasure to read and review, Ana.

How well you described the scars of the wars. Death, phobias, anxiety, invalidism. They paid a high price to fight for our country. I take my hat off for them all. I salute your family too who served in a military.

It is a wonderful, wonderful poem and a great tribute to those who fight for us.

This is a very emotional poem for me. Retired military. The picture selection is just prefect for this poem that is loaded with emotions and imagery.

    Hi Harry! Thanks for compassionate review. Which military did you serve and how long? Were you ever fighting in the wars?

A very well-written poem. Soldiers start as strangers at the beginning of their service, they go through so much together they become like brothers that will do anything for one another.
