The Sound of Fear
Beginning to cry,
She watched as her sons walked away from the house!.
It would be a while before she again saw Jack or Klauss!.
The two boys fighting,
She knew the two brothers were no longer friends!.
She hoped that their lives wouldn't be coming to their ends!.
Months going by,
It's nearing July,
And no word of Jack, her Confederate son!.
Time passing slowly,
She's beginning to get lonely,
And from her Union son, Klauss, still none!.
She receives a letter today!.
Something was terribly astray!.
Tears coming back,
Her heart remembering Jack,
The letter says that he is now dead!.
Eyes reading on,
Sad thoughts dawn,
She learns that Klauss shot him in the head
She dares to read the rest of the terrible and unfortunate letter!.
She reads that Klauss killed himself when he learned he was the death whetter!.
Tears are running dry,
She's letting out a sigh,
She notices one more paper in the mail!.
Eyes examining the note,
She is reading what Klauss wrote,
It says, simply, that he is sorry for the sad tale!.
Brothers fighting brothers,
Massacres killing innocent others,
The national love was lost for four long years!.
Hate and sadness flowing,
No happiness showing,
The Civil War created the sound of fear!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
