Otis Henry

An angel, woman, student, soldier,
student and soldier are as one.
A doughboy throwing his grenade
Only to have gas terminate his youth

In a foreign land of a forgotten war
The war to end all wars that fueled the next
A mothers love would propel the memory
To stone and building for a post

earning a place on a history list
In the end, the name prompts questions
From a generation eighty years newer.
Curious about the grave with no boy
Otis Henry, student and soldier and finally
Marble.
