ANZAC Day Tribute

The moonless night

Casts unfamiliar shadows

On our precious land

The age-old battle

Of a familiar kind


Pray for our land

Pray for hope

In this dark hour

Pray for souls

Who stake their lives

For this free air


I hear your screams

But your lips don’t move

I feel your shadow grow

But you lay perfectly still


Dawn cracks

Breathe the air

So victoriously sweet

God is forgotten

The soldier is laid to rest


If lady luck smiles on his soul

Amongst the ones

He has grown to love

As a friend, as a brother

Most of all

As a comrade

In pursuit for this free land

Aucklander Avilesh Prasad is a former Naval Officer and a keen writer. The above poem is a homage to the martyrs and those serving in the defence forces on the occasion of ANZAC Day
