2-Minutes’ Silence – 100-Years’ Sleep.

2-Minutes’ Silence – 100 Years’ Sleep.

Two minutes silence

for me is quite a lot;

for them, it’s a part of what they had

when their guns fell silent

when the shelling stopped

when they lay down their heads

and began the sleep

of a hundred years…

and more.
