NaPoWriMo Quarantine Edition – Exercise 25

Today is Anzac Day, the day of remembrance for all those who have served in the armed forces of New Zealand and Australia.

Your task for today is to write a poem in response to a war poem by someone who actually served in the military. (Wikipedia has an interesting page on War Poets that might be a place to start if this is an area you don’t normally venture into.)

I’m not going to tell you how to frame your response – just read until you hit a poem that speaks to you,  and then write your own poem in reply. Pro war, anti war, war-agonstic, war-complicated, whatever. If you need a place to start, reread the poem, then look up at the poet and ask them a question. Go on from there.
