Wrote a bad sonnet about female Ukranian soldiers

Wanted to write a good one but it was beyond me.

But photos of those soldiers moved this former female Army Officer.

With flowers woven into hair bright gold

A girl with rifle held at ready now

Oh Russia, she lies waiting, spirit bold

And wears upon shoulders, a soldier’s vow.



She will not be defeated nor allayed

Her homeland is her heart, she stands with pride

Your leader, Russia, has your soul betrayed

And death will take your soldiers like the tide.



The bombs they throw from cars against your tanks

Give extra light to her resolute eyes,

Spirit a river overflowing banks

And you oh Russia march forward on lies.



She fights for her children and yes for her home

Russian sunflowers will bloom in the loam.
