Last Post


Muffled drums bring slow marching feet
Around and across the waiting square
Play past the halt and stop
The Standard creaks to half mast
A paused Trooper points his bugle
To pour the world silvered notes
The ghost armies briefly stay
Their ever constant war
Then resume their fight
As the last note fades
And the parade falls out
The Standard's rope cracks cracks cracks
Against its pole on the empty windy ground
