"The Wall" a poem by Marcus Guy

The cobblestone path ensures that each step is thoughtful
As I enter the embrace of the dark granite wall
At first it is a very short wedge of stone with just a few names
With each step more names 
The wall grows 
I see the reflections of old soldiers behind and beside me
The wall grows 
I can hear the bugler playing taps from somewhere above
The wall grows
I am no longer able to see beyond the wall or to its end
I am fully engulfed in it’s embrace
