Across a field of lilacs spread
The warriors in their flight
Ten thousand fought and died here
Eight hundred fled to the night

Blood and lilacs merged into
Cacophony of sight and smell
Death and beauty lay as one
Upon a battlefield of hell

Flowers bent oer each body
As tho they wept in sorrow
Sightless eyes stared back at them
One last look beyond tomorrow

A field of lilacs wept that day
Young men fought and died
Purple for their patriot passion
And red for their patriot pride

Sharon-
  Very powerfully written piece.
