Artist's Description

Not a huge expensive monument, no marble, just tiny wooden crosses with written names, poppies, bleached photographs it has such an impact on me.They will be not forgotten. In thoughts and silence I left. So very thankfull for the moment which is so totally diffrent as where I live now.

From ‘There Lie Forgotten Men’

“She stands there alone
At the edge of the silent place
And she is shocked
New wars brew and these forgotten men
Will play no part in them
The dead silence warn no ears but hers
In great halls, in moments of great decision
What they fought for is forsaken
And by day’s end new gravestones
Appear on the blood red ground
She finds what she seeks
‘Sgt John Malley Age 27’
His life brutally ended
And she stands by his grave
But he can give no answers
And she weeps for him
For the empty hole he left behind
And for the new emptiness
Soon to join the black chasm.
And her tears join the flood.”
