"Today the bite of frost nibbles On icy dusk and rain-spun grass When prayers glide of nighttime down, As battle strikes your whispers yield Through ambushed maze drilling around. Yet heartbeats vow for honor, true Enduring nights…freedom pursued. Kismet of hope is in the air While we all feel your longing thoughts Miles away…sweet tidings declare Your dreams fluttering in chilled fall About scenes of love and dear home’s care. The rising star a grain of gold In moments brave soldiers behold. Then victory blazes in red Matching the robin as it sings From soar of peace…from soar of might A courage blessed through godly will Heroes return as breaths alight. The autumn lays her colors by As wishes crown your promised sky"
