The Totally Optional Prompt is 'A Person'

Carl Sandburg wrote about people from time to time. Sometimes historical figures like Lincoln or Billy Sunday, and sometimes a stock character (i.e. waiter, steel worker). This week's challenge is to think of a specific person and write about them.

Remarks on the prompt, your latest poetry discovery, or this 'poetry exchange' blog can be made as comments to this posting. Late Wednesday night, between one rerun and another, I'll post a Request For Poems, where you can leave a link to your poem inspired by the prompt, or any other poem you want to share.

Wrote one as soon as I read the prompt...couldn't resist.

The pity of War

This is an older one that I think fits the prompt. This poem was written one cold rainy April afternoon. It is my painting in words of my Father-in-law.

A Man Of All Seasons
