Remember us

The young dead soldiers do not speak. 

Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses: 
who has not heard them? 

They have a silence that speaks for them at night 
and when the clock counts. 

They say: We were young. We have died. 
Remember us. 
Archibald MacLeish

Take a Word asked for NUMBERS. I don't know how but I ended up with this, but I like it. Thanks for visiting!

Background is a photo of The Rifle House Cemetery, in Belgium, that contains 230 First World War burials. I googled the WW1 soldiers photos. Texture by Chris Johnson.
