Poem about my wonderful grandfather

John Walker served his country in WWII

It was something he felt obligated to do.

In combat he risked his life

Even while he was facing strife

He wrote his family back at home

While he was on another roam

Slept, ate and celebrated his birthday

In a foxhole while there was gun play

A short break John took from war

He listened live to Dinah Shore

Met the nice people of France and Holland

There he bought some Chocolate Almonds

Posed in a painting for Martin Koblo

John said, "He was a very nice fellow"

When it was announced that the war had ended

John wrote home and said "I feel quite splendid"

"I’ll be home honey,Β Β just as quick as I can

Can’t wait to see you, Margaret and Ann"
